Appeals & Commemoration Days

Appeals

The 2017 Poppy Appeal will begin on Friday 27th October and run until Friday 10th November.

You can purchase a variety of merchandise from within our RSL or from pop-up venues around the community, to show your support.

There is also an opportunity to volunteer to help sell merchandise.  If you are interested, please contact Liesl New via 9783 2288.

The 2017 ANZAC Appeal was another great success.

This year we raised just over $61,000!

Thank you to all those who donated and to everyone who helped out.
