This Sunday we are holding the WT Author Watch Auction 2020 on eBay for one week in aid of the Royal British Legion’s Shropshire Poppy Appeal.

The Royal British Legion

Like so many things this year, the Poppy Appeal has had to adapt to the threat of Covid-19. They’re calling on the public to support them like never before, because every poppy counts.

With some people unable to leave their homes as they normally would to find a poppy, and with many of the charity’s collectors unable to carry out face to face collections, they’ve unveiled a range of new ways for people to show their support remotely.


From donating for poppies through the post for your neighbours and local community, displaying a poppy in your window, donating online or undertaking a virtual Poppy run, there are many ways to support the Poppy Appeal from home in line with Covid-19 restrictions.
