The Poppy Appeal

The Poppy Appeal in Javea Branch Area

Poppy Appeal 2020

The British Community in Javea has always staunchly supported The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, both by donating directly to the appeal itself and by attending the annual Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday.  Your generous contribution has allowed the work of the Legion to take place here in Spain, supporting a wide range of ex-Service veterans and their families in time of need.  The difficult situation we have all faced this year has been challenging for us all and we are now supporting more veterans than ever before, both young and old, helping them to live their lives in times of hardship as well as physical and mental conditions.

So your contributions this year are every bit as vital to our work as ever.  Every single cent you donate to the Poppy Appeal goes directly to helping them through our network of amazing and dedicated volunteers, so I can assure you that whatever you can afford to give us will be put to good use in the local community here in Spain.  So how can you donate – as well as Poppy Boxes in many local businesses, where you can donate and “wear their poppy with pride!”, we have established a Go Fund Me site.

Many of you will have attended the annual service mentioned earlier.  For obvious reasons we’re unable to hold a service on such a scale this year but are still working on how we will mark it this year.  Keep an eye on these pages for more details as our plans develop or join our Facebook page.  If you want to know more about The Royal British Legion’s work here in Spain and about Remembrance itself you can also visit the page for District North Spain.  If you have any questions or experience any difficulty getting your poppy, don’t hesitate to contact Nick Keen at

Poppy Appeal 2019 - Thank You!

This year, Javea Branch of the Royal British Legion has had another very successful Poppy Appeal and has raised a huge total of €7,588. When added to the total collected across Spain, this will allow the Legion to provide much needed support for the many expat Veterans and their families who find themselves in need here.

We would like to thank all the businesses, organisations, groups and individuals across our whole area who contributed to this amazing sum. Your efforts are much appreciated and the money you helped us raise will make a real difference to people in genuine need - thank you all on their behalf!
