A very special gift

A gift in your Will is the perfect way to honour our Armed Forces and support a cause that’s close to your heart. Poppy Legacies help us support thousands of Armed Forces veterans, whether they are facing a crisis like homelessness, disability, failing health or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Supporters like you are behind everything that we do for veterans and their families – and leaving a Poppy Legacy would be a wonderful way to continue your support after you’ve gone. 

In our video below, watch Donald, Ronnie, and Kevin tell their stories and see the difference you could make by leaving a Poppy Legacy in your Will.

The importance of Poppy Legacies

It costs over £10,000 a day to keep us running and support the Armed Forces community living in Scotland. Last year, gifts in Wills accounted for more than £350,000 (or over 18%) of our income. They helped to fund our Welfare Services which are a lifeline to thousands of veterans and their families. In the period from Oct 2022 to Sept 2023, gifts in Wills directly contributed to these stats.

We’d be delighted to chat to you if you need any further information.
