This Friday is Poppy Day
Poppy Day 2015 is this Friday, April 17.
Funds raised from the appeal, the RSA’s major fundraiser, are held in trust and are used solely to support veterans, former and current servicemen and servicewomen and their dependants.
Assistance ranges from grants for those in financial need to helping with practical tasks, supplementing healthcare costs, counselling, providing meals on wheels, home maintenance or offering friendship and support in times of need or illness.
Last year $1,780,983 was raised nationwide. Funds raised locally are distributed locally.
