Ocean Grove Barwon Heads Sub-Branch is asking the local community to
dig deep this Remembrance Day and donate to its annual Poppy Appeal.
Sub-Branch President Kel Arnott 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 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 Ocean Grove Barwon Heads Sub-Branch,( locations listed below),  or you can donate online via poppyappeal.com.au to help change a veterans’ life. Every little bit counts.” the 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.
The Sub-Branch has Poppy Sales Trays at several businesses in both Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads where the public may purchase a commemorative poppy or those that prefer to donate online can do so at www.poppyappeal.com.au
