Meet our volunteers

Scottish Poppy Appeal Area Organisers

Scottish Poppy Appeal collections are organised by around 450 local volunteer Area Organisers. In the film below Ramsay McGhee, our Area Organiser on the Black Isle, explains what his role entails.

 

Scottish Poppy Appeal Collectors & Helpers

The Scottish Poppy Appeal relies on an army of around 10,000 volunteer collectors and helpers who take on vital roles to ensure we raise as much as possible during the Remembrance period. Lynne Reed, a volunteer from Dunblane, outlines some of the things she gets up to as a collector.

 

Poppyscotland Volunteer Fundraising Support Group

The Armed Forces community cannot wait until November for support and therefore Poppyscotland needs to raise funds all year round. Local community groups of all shapes and sizes from across the country organise their own fundraising activities throughout the year. The film below highlights what the Tryst Patchworkers did for Poppyscotland.
