Without them, the Appeal would simply not exist. Our Area Organisers fulfil an important role, ensuring that poppies are available in every city, town and village in Scotland. Here we say thank you to those who have recently retired from their roles, often after many years of dedicated service.

Vanessa Barrett, Forfar

Alex McTaggart, Cockenzie & Port Seton

Robert Livermore, St Fillans

Elizabeth Wood, Crawfordjohn

Susan Mellor, Sanday

Alison Murray, Kilmany

Derek Ivor Davis, Thornhill

Alison Brown, Tobermory

Serena Mitchell, Glenrothes

Louise O’Neill, Newport

and Raymond Forman from Muirkirk who sadly died on 25th May.

And, as we say goodbye to some of our volunteers, we welcome new Area Organisers who are taking on their first Scottish Poppy Appeal:

Denise Thomson, Sanday

Janet Drife, Crawfordjohn

Richard Graham, St Fillans

Aileen Carroll and Sheila McGauchie,

Cockenzie & Port Seton

Gary Wallace, Partick & Whiteinch (Glasgow)

Andrea Mason, Forfar

Kevin Lancaster, Anstruther

Walter Kerr, Drumchapel (Glasgow)

Craig Wilson, Finnieston (Glasgow)

Volunteering for Poppyscotland is rewarding and makes a real difference to the Armed Forces community in Scotland. We are always seeking more volunteers to join our team and there are a number of areas currently without an Area Organiser. To see the list click here
