This year's Poppy Appeal has been launched in Thorpe St Andrew.
Collectors will be based at the Sainsbury's store on Pound Lane until Remembrance Sunday on November 12.
Royal British Legion (RBL) members were accompanied by town mayor Ian Mackie and Norfolk County Council chairman John Ward for the appeal's launch on Saturday.
Last year's collection at the supermarket raised £8,500 in three weeks.
Julian Mogford, RBL committee member of the Thorpe Branch, has organised for this year's launch event.
He said: 'Donations are spent on helping veterans stay in their own homes, helping military families, helping the injured servicemen recover, teaching children the meaning of remembrance and careers advice for service leaders.'
Linda Andrews, PR ambassador for Sainsbury's, said: 'We hope to once again help raise a significant amount for the RBL.'
