About volunteering

In terms of how much time you will have to volunteer for, the simple answer is as much as you can! Whether it’s a few hours, a few days or more, every penny you are able to raise will help fund our vital services. An extra hour could boost your collection by 6% and if this was replicated across the country that could see an extra £150,000 raised.

As well as collectors we also need Scottish Poppy Appeal Area Organisers. These individuals are also volunteers but take responsibility for coordinating the Appeal in their area, ensuring that poppies are available throughout the campaign.

Watch our short film to see why our volunteers come back year after year!
