London Poppy Day 2017

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by Joker62, Oct 9, 2017.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. London Poppy Day takes place on 2nd Nov this year. As usual, it covers all mainline and tube stations within the Greater London area. You can just turn up and speak to one of the uniformed collectors and join in on the days shennanigans, there's entertainment in Covent Garden and Leadenhall Market during the day too, so it's not all about standing around collecting.

  4. Sealed by the official collectors on the scene and unsealed by the same when it comes to picking up the cash later during the day, you could always bring some stock from the stores to make some cash on the day though.

    Binned due to the RFC being "sick of this damn war: the blood, the noise, the endless poetry."

  14. Sounds nice, feels a bit mean to abandon the others though.
