Poppy Shop for special items

The official period for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal in 2021 will be 30th October to 13th November. The collectors will be at Tesco and Asda on 30th October and from 6th November to 13th November and at Wilkin & Sons from 30th October and there will be tins at various local businesses from 30th October to 14th November. Remembrance Sunday will be on the 14th. The Tiptree District now encompasses Great & Little Braxted, Messing and Layer Breton. I am also looking after Layer de la Haye.

See Special Events for commemoration parade and service.

New collectors are always welcome, so please get in touch with Sue to volunteer, you will need to fill in this editable form and send it to me. Any businesses and organisations which haven’t taken part before are also encouraged to get in touch.

There are various collection slots that aren't covered yet, so please get in touch if you can volunteer. Please see the grids below and note that the Wilkin & Sons collections are at different times of day to Asda and Tesco. Sunday collections are also at different times to match opening hours. What is needed is marked up with an A, T or W in the two timetables below (week 1-filled and 2-vacancies).

if the letter is there twice it means there is nobody scheduled so far at Tesco or Asda. We just need one person at Wilkins (smaller space).

If you don't like collecting, maybe you could help us set up or close down. Here is a picture of some of the 28 boxes that we have in store and there will be more once the new stock arrives.

We shall be setting up on 29th October between 10:00 and 17:00.

We shall be closing down on 15th November between 10:00 and 17:30.

You can find out more about the work of the British Legion from their website. The legion Poppy Shop is open all year round, so you can buy items for special occasions; but the normal appeal items will be available in Tiptree during the appeal period to receive your donations. You can gift aid your donation.
