Donate like you mean it

Does it mean you are against them being disadvantaged or that you want to help them live full lives? Does it mean you care? We believe it means all these things. That’s why the 2015 Scottish Poppy Appeal campaign will have a strong call to action: Donate like you mean it. Look out for our TV advert which will air for two weeks on STV from 26th October. It will feature beneficiaries, supporters and volunteers who will call for the public to show their support once again this year by giving as much as they can.

Please help us make the 2015 Appeal the best ever. Poppies and tins will be available across the country and we’re planning an exciting range of activities, including student and corporate collections and poppy-up shops throughout Scotland. Our Fields of Remembrance in Edinburgh and Inverness will display thousands of crosses and other symbols bearing messages of tributes and support. If you would like to receive a cross or other symbol to personalise and be planted in either of our Fields of Remembrance call us on 0131 550 1567.

Please continue to support us this year so that we can continue to make a difference to those who have served, those still serving and their families. Thank you.
