Scottish Poppy Appeal

The Scottish Poppy Appeal is Poppyscotland’s largest fundraising campaign, which takes place annually in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday in November.  Five million poppies are distributed across Scotland by our army of volunteers who ensure that the poppies and tins are displayed in shops, businesses and schools. As well as street collections there is a host of activity aimed at raising as much money as possible.  Money raised during the Scottish Poppy Appeal is used to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community living in Scotland.
