Poppy Appeal 2020

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, elements of this year’s local Poppy Appeal have had to be cancelled because street and house-to-house collections cannot be undertaken by volunteers whilst maintaining the required social distancing. However, many shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels are still able to take donation cans and poppies; these will be distributed on 19th/20th October.

This year a link to a ‘Just Giving’ fundraising website for the Auchterarder area has been established: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ao-auchterarder that will allow donors to contribute to the local Poppy Appeal without the need to leave home. It is hoped that this facility will compensate somewhat for the lost donations usually received in the street and on doorsteps.
