THE Frankston RSL branch has begun its 2019 Poppy Appeal.

Frankston RSL president Kevin Hillier said the fundraising drive would help support veterans and their families.

“From 1 November, our volunteers will be selling the much loved and iconic red poppy in our local community,” he said.

“By purchasing a poppy, you are not only remembering those who have served in the past, but you are also helping to support those who are still serving today, as 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of every poppy goes towards supporting service men, women and their families in times of need.” 

Poppies can be purchased through the RSL branch, Woolworths, or Officeworks. Donations to the Poppy Appeal can be made at poppyappeal.com.au.
