The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance.

The first Poppy Appeal was held in 1921.
The poppies sold out almost immediately and raised over £106,000; a considerable amount at the time.
Our Poppy Stall will be in Girne Town Centre on Thursday 24th & 31st October ... between 11am & 3pm.
Come down for your Poppy and have a chat with our Volunteers there to help you, we will be happy to see you.
