Wodonga sub-branch is asking the community to dig deep this Remembrance Day

5 Nov, 2020

Wodonga Sub-Branch is asking the local community to dig deep this Remembrance Day and donate to its annual Poppy Appeal.

Wodonga Sub-Branch President Jim Begley said: “Our Poppy Appeal will look a little bit different this year, and you may not see our RSL volunteers on the streets raising money by selling the iconic poppy badges as we normally would.”

“But just because we may not be able to physically fundraise, does not mean that the need to raise funds disappears.”

“We need your help now, more than ever. If you can, a small donation – a gift of kindness – for a poppy from the Wodonga Sub-Branch or you can donate via poppyappeal.com.au to help change a veterans’ life. Every little bit counts.” Jim Begley Sub-Branch President said.

The RSL’s Poppy Appeal is an annual fundraising activity that Sub-Branches across the nation take on in the lead up to Remembrance Day each year. Every dollar raised through the Poppy Appeal will go to supporting veterans and their families with a range of RSL health and wellbeing support services, including relief from financial hardship.

Donations to the Wodonga Sub-Branch Poppy Appeal can be made by purchasing a commemorative poppy from the Wodonga Sub-Branch or by donating online at poppyappeal.com.au
