Poppy Appeal

The annual Poppy Appeal is the primary source of funds for the RSA’s extensive provision of support services to the service community.

You don't have to be a member of an RSA to benefit from the Poppy Appeal assistance. Donations are used to support both current and ex-service men and women, including the NZ Police, and their dependents, living in the community where the funds are raised.

The poppy reminds us of sacrifices made – both past and present - as they were the first flowers that grew in the battlefields of Flanders in Belgium during World War One and are a symbol of remembrance and hope.

The Poppy Day street collection is held each year on the Friday before Anzac Day. In 2017, we're getting our poppies ready for Friday April 21st. During the appeal, hard working RSA volunteers exchange distinctive red poppies for a donation to the Poppy Appeal. All funds raised go towards our vital support work, which can include financial support, advocacy, family days and access to strong network of people who have been through similar experiences, to name a few. 

So please make whatever donation you can afford on Poppy Day. Your generosity enables us to continue what we do, both at a national and local RSA level.

Support Services - people helping people.
