2020 British Legion Poppy Appeal – Towcester

Waitrose have given the British Legion permission to set up shop in the empty trolley bay in front of the ATMs.

There will be sessions on Saturday 24th, Sunday 25th, Friday 30th, Saturday 31st, Sunday 1st Nov, Friday 6th and Saturday 7th Nov.

All days will start at 10am with Sundays finishing at 4pm but Friday and Saturday sessions will run until 6pm.

Please email David Reed (link below) if you can help on any of those days and give a phone number.

It will be outside but under cover so please make sure that you dress for the weather when you come along.

There will be PPE masks and gloves and plenty of hand sanitiser.

There will also be a credit card reader for contactless payments, but a collecting can will be available for the diehard cash users.

Everything will be set up so that customers will be unable to touch any of the products, which will be on display.  Items will be passed over onto a separate table after the customer has pointed out what they want.

There will be chairs available.

This is essentially the only outlet for the Poppy Appeal in Towcester this year so if you have ever helped at any of the previous sites in the past then please give this serious consideration and try and help if you can.

Please email with a telephone number so we can contact you to arrange a day/time to suit.
