    Known as ‘Bud’, Poppyscotland’s new 18-tonne truck transforms into an interactive learning space and will travel to schools and events across the country in the coming years. And it’s coming to Fife!

    Bud will travel the length and breadth of Scotland visiting schools and diverse communities. Not only will it interpret the heritage of the poppy but will host activities for groups to explore and share a contemporary understanding of remembrance, the nature of conflict and the poppy’s role in modern Scottish society as a symbol of unity and hope.
    Exhibits within the mobile museum include historical artefacts, interactive displays and the moving stories of veterans and their families who have been supported by Poppyscotland. Visitors to Bud will also have the opportunity to make their own poppy using the same methods as the 34-stong team of disabled veterans at Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory in Edinburgh, who still hand-produce the five million poppies for the annual Scottish Poppy Appeal.

    There is a volunteering opportunity on Bud which is the Bud Heritage Volunteer.

    This role gives you the opportunity to work on Bud with school children of all ages, and also to support the Bud Learning and Outreach Officers to deliver the Bud Project taking elements of Lady Haig’s Poppy Factory and Poppyscotland’s archive collection on the road. Training and travel expenses are provided.
