Annual Poppy Appeal Day

What to Expect

The annual Poppy Appeal raises funds for the RSA's support services to war veterans and the ex-service community.   Poppy Appeal collectors will be in Albert Street  and Monk Street all day and would appreciate any donation you are able to give!
Locations points of Poppy Appeal Stalls are:
  • PaperPlus
  • New World
  • Countdown
  • Monk Street Barbershop
  • And collection boxes at retailers throughout town.
Why the Poppy?
The Poppy is used as a symbol by the Returned Service Association (RSA) to remind us of sacrifices made – both past and present. Poppies were the first flowers that grew in the battlefields of Flanders in Belgium  during World War One and are a symbol of remembrance and hope.

RSA volunteers exchange distinctive red poppies for a donation to the Poppy Appeal.
