Scottish Poppy Appeal 2016

From late October look out for our poppies, tins and friendly volunteers in every village, town and city as the 2016 Scottish Poppy Appeal gets underway. We have exciting events and activities lined up to raise funds so we can be there for our Armed Forces community when they call for backup. Simply, they need your help and they need it now. This will be the theme of the Appeal, with adverts on TV and radio across Scotland. Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you will help us make 2016 the best Appeal yet!
