Volunteering days

Connect with colleagues, have fun and make a lasting impact by joining The Poppy Factory’s Centenary celebrations! Together we’ll be a force for hope, helping wounded veterans to re-build their lives.

Make the most of your company volunteering hours with a unique and inspiring event.
Why choose The Poppy Factory for your team away day?
  • Join The Poppy Factory’s friendly and diverse veteran production team for the day in Richmond-upon-Thames and put your poppy and wreath making skills to the test.
  • Be the first to experience our new exhibition, learn about the origins of the poppy and Remembrance, the role of the veterans who have lived and worked at The Poppy Factory over the years, and hear how your support is making a huge difference to the veterans of today.
  • Groups of 15-20 volunteers at a time with flexible start and finish times (usually 10:00-15:30)
  • £50 per person donation. Every penny contributes to helping more veterans.
  • Optional use of The Poppy Factory’s 22-seater boardroom for teams looking to add a working element to their day. Further information on request.
