The Emerald RSL Sub-Branch is calling on the community to support its efforts to raise vital funds for Australia’s heroes.
The local RSL’s annual Anzac Appeal has begun in earnest, with volunteers all geared up to sell thousands of badges across the region.
On offer will be a variety of Anzac Appeal badges, including a special badge to commemorate the last great charge of the Australian Light Horse at Beersheba in 1917.
Emerald sub-branch president Peter Maloney said the appeal continued to gather momentum.
“All our dedicated volunteers, often veterans, are determined to get into the community and not only sell Anzac Appeal badges, but to share their stories and experiences.
“It is a wonderful time for our community to come together and pay respects to our past and present servicemen and women.”
Meanwhile, RSL Victoria’s appeals manager Peter Smith said the funds enabled the delivery of much-needed assistance to those men and women who have served our country.
“Funds from the Anzac Appeal go to a variety of services and programs for veterans who need help and is tailored to their needs and circumstances,” he said.
“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 RSL Victoria.”
Mr Smith said each RSL sub-branch in Victoria played a vital role within their community and for many veterans.
You can purchase an Anzac Appeal badge from your local RSL sub-branch or outside the Emerald Village Newsagency.
Anzac Appeal badges are also available at Woolworths.
You can also donate online at www.anzacappeal.com.au
