THE Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads RSL Sub-branch is ready for this year’s Poppy Appeal, with a committed group of volunteers manning three stations in Ocean Grove and two in Barwon Heads.
Not only does buying and wearing a poppy show respect for our country’s fallen heroes, but it helps raise vital funds to assist past and present servicemen and women and their dependents in times of need.
Sub-branch president Graham Fisher acknowledged the phenomenal commitment shown by the members and volunteers who time and time again, make the Poppy Appeal such a success.
“Year in, year out, our community rallies together to support the Poppy Appeal in the lead up to Remembrance Day. I would like to thank the local community from the very outset who support our sub-branch and wear their poppy with pride,” he said.
Ocean Grove selling stations will be located outside Safeway in Shell Road, Pharmasave Pharmacy on The Terrace and outside LiquourLand in the Coles supermarket car park.
Barwon Heads has two selling stations, APCO Service Station and the Barwon Heads Newsagent in Hitchcock Avenue.
