Appeals

Our thanks to all who have supported our Appeals in the past: by purchasing tokens, by taking a box to sell at work, by giving their time to sell or by assisting with organising behind the scenes.

We are calling on all members to help with the 2019 Anzac Appeal. We know times are tougher than they have been in previous years but without your support, we won’t raise the funds needed to continue the work by the RSL for our Welfare Projects. All funds raised are spent in accordance with State Branch and Consumer Affairs Guidelines to support veterans and their families.

So whether you take some badges to sell at your workplace or indeed volunteer your time to be a seller, please consider joining our team, they are a great bunch of people.

When you read Mufti with all the collections made by each RSL we can be proud of the fact that we always manage to collect more than a lot of the larger clubs who have more members than us. This is due to the commitment by our members to collect on behalf of the Berwick RSL.

We provide everything you need as well as the best venues for selling. Boxes of Anzac merchandise can be collected from 5pm the day before selling. Timetables and venues will be posted in the Members’ Lounge from Thursday 28th March as we start selling on Thursday 11th April. Get in early to book your favourite spot for selling.

One of our members has a young son who just loves getting involved with selling and helping out in any aspect of Anzac Day and any events he is attending. We should be very proud of this young man as his mother is and puts a lot of us to shame

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.”
