The Royal British Legion need volunteers to help with their poppy appeal!

The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every November. Donations from the sale of poppies are used to provide lifelong support for the Armed Forces community- serving men and women, veterans, and their families.

This year’s Poppy Appeal starts on Thursday 25 October, with a launch on Saturday 27 October from 10.30am at the Arch of Remembrance on Victoria Park with the Lord Mayor and Lord Lieutenant.

We need your help! We are looking for volunteers to be ‘Poppy Ambassadors’ to take on the sale of poppies on campus or organise a fundraising event.There is also an opportunity for staff and students to volunteer at a stand in Highcross shopping centre if you wish to volunteer outside of campus.

If you wish to find out more, please contact Helen from the Royal British Legion via email hfairhead@britishlegion.org.uk or call 07458085493. You can find out more about the Poppy Appeal here.
