Poppy Scotland Appeal 2020

October 27, 2020

Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, Poppy Scotland have made some changes to the way they are fundraising this year while still doing their best to ensure that we are all able to wear remembrance poppies. Therefore, for the first time, all donations in Torrance will be cashless.  A Torrance Poppy Appeal JustGiving page has been set up and can be accessed through the following link: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ao-torrance

We would like to get this out to as many people as possible in the village so if you use any of the village social media sites, I would appreciate it if you would post the details or just share with friends and family.  Poppies will be available in the shops and can be collected there.  This year the boxes will have QR and NFC code stickers on them, so as an alternative to JustGiving, anyone wishing to, can donate through their smartphone by scanning the code and following the instructions.

While I completely understand that this is not ideal for a lot of the community, it’s really the only way we can continue with a village collection this year in a safe and manageable way. Thank you, Dorothy McCarthy.
