Poppy Appeal

The Poppy Appeal in Ely


Poppy Appeal is an all year round appeal, which has its main focus leading up and during the Remembrance Period. Our armed forces community need our support now, as much as any time in the past - your contributions, in whatever form, help us make sure the Legion can support them.

Thanks to the generous and kind people of Ely, the 2019 Poppy Appeal has (so far) reached a staggering £50,000+ (and still counting). 

To put that into perspective, the 2013 Poppy Appeal in Ely raised a total of £24,554, 2018 raised over £38,000.  There has definitely been a marked increase in funds raised over the years.  

The City of Ely Poppy Appeal wishes to sincerely thank not only all of those who have given to the appeal over the years, but the army of volunteers that supported it, as well as the local organisations and business who so generously promoted the appeal and looked after our people. We could not have achieved these year on year increases without you


Anyone interested in helping in the Poppy Appeal at any point in the year should contact our Poppy Appeal Coordinator, Les Wilson on the 'City of Ely Poppy Appeal' Facebook page. 

You do not have to be a member of the Ely Branch to help the Poppy Appeal out.
