WHEN MAKING YOUR PAYMENT PLEASE ONLY CLICK THE BUTTON ONCE TO AVOID PAYMENTS BEING TAKEN MORE THAN ONCE
In these current uncertain times, we are still pleased to be supporting the Royal British Legion, we're hoping we won't face the disruptions we faced last year. We now have our 2021 Dated Poppy available for pre-order, these should be available for despatch in May / June time, we will of course keep you updated.
The 2021 dated poppy is limited to 10,000 this year, so be sure to have yours and order early before they sell out this year.
We are aiming to beat last years total, which was amazing given the circumstances.
Of course we would love your continued support again, and with many of you pledging this already we feel we will have another great year ahead, let's just all hope and pray that we can come through this current situation in good health and start to get life back to some kind of normality.
When we started the 2019 appeal we would never imagine we would surpass the 2018 record figure of £30,000, but with your overwhelming support we managed to do it. In 2019 through the appeal we managed to donate a record breaking £31,873.90 to The Royal British Legion and I would like to pass on their thanks for your continued support. We want to make 2021 our record year and you can help us achieve that.
Support for Poppies4Kits since we started in 2014 has been absolutely phenomenal and we would like to ensure this carries on, not only this year, but also for many years to come. Every year we have sold out of Poppies before Remembrance Weekend, this year we aim to have enough to cover us through the period.
Although we had only planned to run this for the 5 year period from 2014 through to 2018 the appeal has gathered so much momentum and interest we have decided to continue this for as long as the public keep supporting us.
As always we urge supporters to purchase theirs in plenty of time to avoid disappointment, we have in previous years tried to gauge sales, but every year we have been overwhelmed by your generosity and support and sold out before the event.
We donate a value of £0.60 (plus vat) for every poppy woven patch sold and £0.70 (plus vat) for every packet of Temporary Tattoos sold.
How It Works
The poppies are woven badges with a self adhesive backing, which makes them easy to apply to almost anything, so not just for kits, stick them anywhere!
- Peel off paper backing
- Stick poppy onto your kit (or other item)
- Play your match
- After match, remove your poppy* (can then be applied onto another item)
- Job done

Why not pop over to these now, see previous photos, and give us a follow, like or share, we'd really appreciate it.
The process is not just simple, it's also very effective.
As well as raising vital funds for The Royal British Legion, we also found last year that the initiative raised lots of awareness amongst the younger audience on the history and symbolism of the poppy and the Armed Forces community.

*We strongly advise you to remove your poppy from the kit before washing as this may leave a gluey residue on the kit.
