OCEAN GROVE BARWON HEADS RSL SUB-BRANCH ALL SET FOR 2017 POPPY APPEAL
Ocean Grove – Barwon Heads Sub-Branch is ready for this year’s Poppy appeal, with a committed group of volunteers manning three stations in Ocean Grove and one 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.
Graham Fisher, President Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL Sub-branch acknowledges 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’s in Shell Rd, Pharmasave Pharmacy in the Main Street and outside LiquourLand in the Coles supermarket carpark.
Barwon Heads have one selling station, APCO Service Station as you enter / leave the town.
