Welcome

Dear Supporter,

This is a busy but rewarding time of year for me and my team of volunteers. I took on the Scottish Poppy Appeal a few years ago after my father passed away, and every year I strive to raise even more money. For me, the key is to do something different. A few years ago, I hosted a fundraising ball and last year I organised a poppy window dressing competition for local businesses. I have held volunteer recruitment events and I have expanded my collection points. I am proud that the money we have raised has increased, and I know my father would be proud too.

I’d like to invite you to do something different this year to support the Appeal. There are many ways to get involved, from holding an event to volunteering for a few hours. Whatever you do, you can be assured you will be  helping our Armed Forces community. I hope you enjoy reading the newsletter and that you find some ideas to inspire you.
