  • Take responsibility for recruiting, supporting, and deploying a network of fellow volunteer Poppy Appeal Collectors to help you.
  • With the support of the Poppy Appeal Manager, carry out an annual review of your Poppy Appeal.

What skills do I need?

  • Is passionate about supporting the British Legion and the Armed Forces community and committed to acting in li9ne with their policies and procedures.
