Service Cadets were out in force in Dunfermline at the weekend in support of Poppyscotland and the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

Cadets from the Dunfermline and Rosyth Detachments of The Black Watch Battalion Army Cadet Force (ACF), Royal Air Force (RAF) Air Cadets from 1145 (Dunfermline) Squadron; and Sea Cadets from Training Ship Fife were out collecting on 4 November ahead of Remembrance Sunday on 9 November. The cadets were supported by Cadet Force Adult Volunteers (CFAVs).

Once again, Highland RFCA Head of Engagement Michelle McKearnon was in attendance as a poppy seller.

Many thanks go to the Royal British Legion (RBL) Dunfermline Branch for their assistance.

Together, the cadets, CFAVs, RBL Dunfermline and the public had the privilege of paying tribute to the brave souls who made the ultimate sacrifice, ensuring their memory lives on. 

◼︎ The Scottish Poppy Appeal is Scotland’s largest fundraising campaign and takes place annually in the lead up to Remembrance Sunday.

Money raised during the appeal is used to provide vital life-changing support to the Armed Forces community in Scotland.

Donations help provide vital support for Service families, Veterans and those currently serving. 

During the appeal around three million poppies are distributed across Scotland by 10,000 volunteers who carry out collections on high streets, in supermarkets and other venues as well as ensuring that poppies and tins are displayed in shops, businesses and schools.
