Kippen and the surrounding villages have a long history of amazing support for Poppy Scotland. Last year was our best ever year raising a fabulous £2168.79. We are not door to door collecting so the only way we can raise funds is through this page and the collecting tins or contactless payment options on the poppy boxes. These can be found in McNicolls, The Woodhouse, The Smiddy, Rhubarb Lime, The Inn and The Cross Keys.

Help Poppyscotland reach out to those who have served, those still serving, and their families at times of crisis and need by offering vital, practical advice, assistance and funding. We believe that those who serve or have served, whether regular or reserve, are deserving of our support to live life fully without disadvantage after service.

No veteran should live without the prospect of employment, good health and a home, and we all have a part to play in achieving this.We are best known for running the iconic Scottish Poppy Appeal, but we work all year round to help those who have served, those still serving and their families receive the care and support they urgently need.The Scottish Poppy Appeal raises over £2 million each year.

This, combined with our other year-round fundraising, enables us to provide tailored support and funding to thousands of ex-Servicemen and women as well as other vital services in advice, employment, mobility, respite, housing and mental health support.

Thank you for your support and thank you once again to Ali Evans and another beautiful photo.
