How you can help save this year's Poppy Appeal from coronavirus threat

THE pandemic may have stopped thousands of sellers from hitting the streets — but it doesn’t have to stop you from buying a poppy.

MIKE RIDLEY looks at some of the ways you can do your bit for the appeal by going to:

Fundraise for appeal

Move to Remember and the 11/11 Challenge are among the fundraising suggestions from the appeal itself.

Free fundraising packs on the website will give the help and support you will need.

Poppies in the post

Help make up for the reduced number of volunteer collectors by requesting 20 poppies free of charge from the RBL — and then giving them to friends and family yourself in return for a donation.

Show your support at

My poppy run 2020

Run, walk or jog any distance, anywhere and at any time. Get family and friends involved to raise cash.

And buy a T-shirt to run in and a medal to give to yourself afterwards!

Visit the poppy shop

There is an extensive range of products from poppy pins and jewellery to clothing, stationery and homeware.

All profits fund the Legion’s work in supporting the Armed Forces community.

Make online donation

Alternatively, you could just visit the British Legion’s website and make a donation.

You can choose a one-off payment or set up a regular amount — and no amount is too small.

  • …Or pop into your local Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda, Aldi or Morrisons and buy a poppy
