Royal British Legion Poppy People Wanted

The Royal British Legion are looking for volunteers to help support the Poppy Appeal in Leicestershire this year. They are looking for any community groups and individuals who would like to get involved.

Poppy People

Helen Fairhead from RBL Leicestershire and Rutland explains:

we always need new volunteers - Poppy People - to assist with Poppy Appeal collecting in Leicestershire and Rutland.

Without volunteer collectors out there on the streets, without appeal organisers planning the collections, this great cause - that helps thousands of ex-Service men and women every year - would grind to a halt.

And we urgently need to recruit more people as many of our current volunteers are retiring from active duty. Add to this the ever increasing demand on the Legion's services and you can see we need your help more than ever.

If you can help - or would like to learn more before making any commitment - please contact
