Take a break from the day-to-day and feel great helping wounded veterans to rebuild their lives. Donate to our campaign today!

Escape with us and change lives this May.

The past year has been tough. Coronavirus has hit unemployed, wounded veterans the hardest and will continue to have a lasting effect. The Poppy Factory has helped veterans move into more than 270 jobs since the start of the pandemic but fundraising is harder than ever and we need your help to continue this vital work.

Escape with us by choosing your own challenge... run, walk, cycle or even meditate your way through May and get sponsored to hit your fundraising goal.

Or simply take a break from the day-to-day and feel great, by donating to our campaign today.

Together we'll be a force for hope, helping wounded veterans on their journey into work, so they can rebuild their lives.
Our handy toolkit has all the resources you need to easily promote The Great May Escape across your company. Or contact Alice Barrett, The Poppy Factory’s Partnerships Manager, on 020 8939 1821 or for further information.

We work with amazing people who have served in our Armed Forces. Read some of their stories below.

"I thought I’d never work again and I really had no confidence. After nine months I’m still getting used to working again. Sometimes asking for help feels like the hardest part. But it’s definitely worth trying.”



“I was medically discharged from the Army because of my mental health, and I really lost my way. Now I love my job. It’s such a refreshing change to want to come to work and my boss is really supportive."



“My life has been an amazing rollercoaster and I’ve learned so much about people on the way. If it wasn’t for the Army, the VC Gallery and Natalie at The Poppy Factory, I don’t know where I’d be now.”
