Ocean Grove Barwon Heads sub-branch president Kelvin Arnott is confident the local community will once again generously support the RSL’s annual ANZAC Appeal.
“Our RSL volunteers, many of them veterans, are ready to offer a variety of ANZAC Appeal badges,” Mr Arnott said.
“The high level of energy and commitment shown in our sub-branch volunteers as they raise the much needed funds is truly humbling.”
Funds from the ANZAC Appeal go to a variety of services and programs for veterans who need help and are tailored to their individual needs and circumstances.
It can include assistance such as medical bills, emergency home repairs, food vouchers and relief from social isolation.
Providing premium welfare services is a top priority for sub-branch and RSL Victoria and the ANZAC Appeal makes it happen.
Members of the community are encouraged to engage with their local RSL sub-branch, attend the commemorative ANZAC services and to show they care by buying and wearing an ANZAC Appeal badge with pride.
Selling stations are located at Safeway, Pharmasave and Liquour Land in Ocean Grove and APCO Service station at Barwon Heads.
Selling will begin on Wednesday 18 April through to Wednesday 24 April.
