Challenge yourself

If you fancy taking on a challenge to raise funds for our lads ‘n’ lassies, we have a whole range of exciting sporting events for you to choose from. This year we’ve added an exciting new challenge to our events calendar – The Kiltwalk. The first Kiltwalk will be in Glasgow on 30th April, but there are walks planned all over Scotland during the year. So why not put on your kilt and raise money for our Armed Forces community. To find out more please call: 0141 338 6584, or email fundraiseforus@poppyscotland.org.uk.

Tea & Toast

Raise funds for the Armed Forces community in Scotland by hosting your own Tea & Toast event with your friends and family. It’s easy to do: all you need are some tea bags, hot water and lots of toast! Fancy a slice of the action?
