The Poppy Appeal is an initiative led by RSL DefenceCare in NSW in the lead up to Remembrance Day, November 11. Funds raised from this activity will be used to support Australian veterans and their families in need.
RSL DefenceCare provides morning tea and support for families as they farewell and welcome home their loved ones at Garden Island. We support three or four ship deployments each year, usually on a weekend.
If you are passionate about helping current and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Force and their families in times of injury, illness or crisis you can do your bit by taking part in one of our fundraisers.
We welcome individuals who would like to give regularly, either through their workplace as a deduction from their pay or through a regular contribution from their financial institution.
Each year ANZAC Day tokens are worn by Australians young and old. The main fundraising Appeals take place in the week leading up to ANZAC Day. The money raised from the appeal supports Australian veterans and their families through services such as community support, claims & advocacy, and financial assistance.
