Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal returns to The Mall Blackburn

The Mall Blackburn is once again supporting the Royal British Legion’s Blackburn Poppy Appeal by donating a unit and equipment free of charge for fundraising activities.

In 2020 the unit was decorated and used as a base for volunteers and, despite being forced to close early due to the second national lockdown, a staggering £5300 was raised.

From Saturday 23rd October until Sunday 14th November shoppers will be able to purchase poppies in a Covid secure manner and donate cash or make contactless payments.

Last year we took an empty unit and created some stunning artwork to inspire people to engage and donate – and it really worked!

The people’s generosity and desire to help others is as strong as ever after the pandemic and we are hoping to raise even more money this year.

The unit is situation near JD Sports and Home & Fragrance. For further information and advice on how to support the Royal British Legion's 2021 Poppy Appeal please visit: or their Facebook page @blackburnpoppyappeal
