In your area

The Scottish Poppy Appeal covers every city, every town and every village in Scotland.  Each year more than 5 million poppies and 60,000 collecting tins are distributed by our incredible network of volunteer Area Organisers and Collectors.

Opportunities for new Area Organisers

Our Area Organisers fulfil a vitally important role.  They are responsible for the collections in his or her area, and for ensuring that poppies are available throughout the campaign. They will coordinate their local team of volunteers to get poppies and tins distributed out to key locations, and where appropriate, they will organise collections at local supermarkets, shopping centres and transport hubs. Without these incredible individuals, the Scottish Poppy Appeal would simply not happen. We have a number of key locations where Area Organiser vacancies exist.  If you are interested in taking on the role of Area Organiser please get in touch with us today. 

Opportunities for new Collectors

We have an army of around 10,000 volunteer collectors but we need to recruit several hundred new collectors each year to replace those who retire or who can no longer get involved. Quite simply, more collectors means more money raised. So wherever you are in the country, please get in touch and we’ll connect you with your local Area Organiser, who will discuss with you exactly where, when and how you can get involved locally.
