Annual Review 2011/12: Fundraising
Poppyscotland relies on its army of volunteers who give up their time to support Scotland’s veterans and their families. Many are area organisers, who run the Scottish Poppy Appeal in their village or town, and collectors and helpers support them during the campaign.
In 2011 we held our first volunteer gathering. It provided a chance for Poppyscotland volunteers across Scotland come together to enable us to thank them for all their hard work, tell them how their support is making a difference, inform them of our latest plans as well as giving them an opportunity to meet each other, share ideas and experience. About 60 volunteers attended the event in Perth and all regarded the day as a success, so much so that we intend to make it an annual occasion.
