Poppy Day Appeal 2019

Thank you from our President

I ask you to give generously to help Veterans in need.

The Auckland RSA Annual Poppy Appeal makes a big difference in the lives of Veterans, their families and dependents. Auckland RSA is a registered charity. We don’t run a bar. We keep our costs of operation low.  We focus on our twin missions: supporting Veterans and commemoration and remembrance of the Fallen. I want you to know that every dollar you give in this Appeal goes to helping Veterans.

Your donation will allow us:

  • to address cases of real hardship.
  • provide Veterans with assistance with glasses, medical devices and treatment when government help is not available.
  • assist wounded men and women to participate in the Invictus Games to aid their rehabilitation.
  • help Veterans struggling with government forms to apply for the assistance they are entitled to.

We can only care for younger and our older Veterans because of the generous spirit of Aucklanders.
We are very grateful for any assistance you can give.

Yours sincerely

Graham Gibson
President,  Auckland RSA
