As Remembrance Sunday approaches, the ways in which we can commemorate are changing. See what online campaigns you can take part in from home this Remembrance Sunday.

Face to face ceremonies and memorials have been cancelled across the UK amid the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent social distancing rules, but there are still numerous ways you can commemorate from home this November.

From a two-minute silence at your doorstep, buying poppies, to online ceremonies there are many ways you can commemorate. Councils and charities like The Royal British Legion are running a variety of different digital campaigns that you can take part in to remember members of the Armed Forces that died in the line of duty.

We have compiled a list of different online campaigns from the East Midlands that you can join in with:

If you would like to show your support for your Armed Forces you can make a donation to the Poppy Appeal, where every poppy makes a difference to the lives of our Armed Forces community.

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. Visit The Royal British Legion for more information.
