2021 marks the centenary of the poppy as the national symbol of Remembrance. Poppyscotland want to celebrate this milestone with our Volunteer Centenary Awards, recognising their amazing volunteers who make the poppy so special in their communities.

These awards are designed to celebrate our diverse portfolio of supporters from individual volunteers, schools and clubs, Cadets Groups and more, who contribute so much to the success of the annual Scottish Poppy Appeal. 

Beginning on Armed Forces Day on Saturday 26 June, and running until Saturday 31 July, you can nominate individuals and groups who you believe deserves recognition (you can even nominate yourself!). 

There are nine categories:

  1. Young Persons Award (under 18) 
  2. Youth Uniformed Organisation Individual/Unit Award 
  3. Poppy Hero Award (Individual)
  4. School or Youth Group Award 
  5. Group or Club Award (Rotary, WI etc) 
  6. Royal British Legion Scotland Branch Award
  7. Corporate Award 
  8. Welfare Services Award 
  9. President’s Award

There is a special category for Royal British Legion Branches in recognition of the tremendous fundraising our member and branches do annually to support the appeal.
