First World War Centenary event (Saturday 3 November)

The Royal British Legion will be out in force at our Shrewsbury Town match

22 October 2018

2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. To honour this milestone, we have teamed up with the Royal British Legion for our home match against Shrewsbury Town (Saturday 3 November).

Before, during and after the match volunteer Poppy sellers will be collecting donations for the Royal British Legion. The Last Post will also be played before The Dons take on The Shrews.

Additionally, that evening the Surrey Royal British Legion will be hosting a 100 Years Centenary fundraising event in Your Golf Travel Bar at our ground from 8.30 pm after the game.

The evening will feature a raffle, live rock and roll band as well as usual wide selection of drinks that our bar stocks.

  • Tickets cost £10 for adults and under 16s go free.

You can buy a ticket by ringing the Surrey Royal British Legion (Ron Griffin) on 078 3229 1668 or emailing

If you prefer to buy a ticket in person direct from the club, please just pop into the ticket office and ask for Pietro Palladino (09:30 - 17.00 Monday to Friday).

Also the marvellous Terry’s Badges will be selling special Dons Poppy badges for £3 from the popular stall Terry runs at our home matches.
