I would say No to this only because i have already donated and got a poppy from my place of work.
I feel many others would be in the same boat as me in regards to their workplaces having poppy collections.

Not sure what you are remembering today? An early Guy Fawkes night possibly?
Remembrance Sunday is Sunday, November 9 this year.

"The second Sunday in November, which is the Sunday nearest to 11 November Armistice Day"

I kind of agree with this, it's not as though the world is lacking for opportunities to donate for those that want to. Maybe just pop a collection tin somewhere with good traffic so it's seen and won't be stolen unnoticed (by the kitchen hatch?) and empty it every now and then. I imagine there's a fair bit of loose change going around in pockets after shopping trips.

Nice thought, Goose, but I think most people will have bought one by this weekend.

In an interesting turn of events, despite his fundraising fervour Goose managed to sleep through the 2 minutes silence.

I'd say that was fundraising.
