New Ways to Donate 2020

The Poppy Appeal - Dunmow & District Royal British Legion

There are new ways to donate this year.


Every year, our volunteers distribute over 40 million poppies to help our vital work in supporting the Armed Forces community.

However, due to COVID-19, many of our volunteers are unable to help this year. That is why we are offering new ways of donating to ensure we can continue to help our Armed Forces community in their time of need, ensuring their unique contribution is never forgotten. 

Donate online

From 6 October, when you donate online you’ll receive a link to a printable poppy which you can print off and place in your window to show others you’re supporting the Poppy Appeal.
