About the Poppy Appeal
The Poppy Appeal is the Royal British Legion’s biggest fundraising campaign held every year in November, the period of Remembrance, raising vital funds to help the Armed Forces community. Join us as we show our appreciation and remember all those who served and sacrificed, and help us to help those who suffer as a result of that great service and sacrifice.
We are able to reclaim Jersey tax on any gift over £50, if you are a Jersey tax payer.
2020 Poppy Appeal
We are thrilled to announce that thanks to the extraordinary generosity of islanders, the Jersey Poppy Appeal 2020 raised just over £200,000.
We are overwhelmed by the humbling amount of money, especially given what a challenging year it has been. When so much was not possible this year, people clearly focussed on what would be possible: to think of others, give support to our community of former service personnel and find a bit of joy in fundraising.
This sum of money will allow us to look after our own and also send a modest sum back to the UK for resources we do not have on the island.
On behalf of service veterans and their families we offer our sincere and heartfelt gratitude. Thank you, Jersey!
