Appeal for poppy volunteer in Broseley

The Royal British Legion believes that no one who serves, or has served, should be disadvantaged by their Service. Annually approximately 60,000 people approach the RBL asking for welfare information and support.

Since Covid this number has increased by 15-20%. The RBL’s mission is to bring together local communities to create better futures for our Armed Forces community. With your help they are able to make a huge difference, keeping families together, preventing homelessness and improving physical and mental health.

Each year thousands of wonderful volunteers across the country help to raise vital funds during the Poppy Appeal. To safeguard the Poppy Appeal in Broseley the RBL is searching for people who are passionate about our Armed Forces, keen to help their community take part in Remembrance and have organisational skills.

The Poppy Appeal Organiser role entails ordering the stock and making it ready, contacting local schools and businesses to organise delivery of poppies and collecting tins, arranging the volunteers to help deliver, topping up stores which run out of stock, arranging for the volunteers to bring everything back in after the appeal, then informing the local community how much has been raised.

All training is provided, plus the local community fundraiser is on hand to walk you through the whole process. Local knowledge, references and access to a vehicle are required plus pre-arranged expenses are paid for.
