The Poppy Appeal – the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign


November 8, 2019

Today we take an intentional time out to acknowledge our ancestors’ reality.

To remember that there was a time not long ago where the whole world felt perilous – where 10.5 million people didn’t make it out alive.
This history is part of our DNA. May we be forever humbled by and grateful for the sacrifices of those passed.

Each year, thousands of iconic paper poppies are distributed, collecting donations in return to help support the Armed Forces community.
Members of the public wear the paper poppy on their chest as a symbol of Remembrance: to remember the fallen Service men and women killed in conflict.
