Volunteering for Fundraising Appeals

RSL NSW plays an integral part in helping to raise critical funds to support veterans and their families through the services provided by RSL DefenceCare and Veteran Sport Australia.

To find out more about the important work that RSL DefenceCare and VSA do for our veterans visit www.defencecare.org.au/about and www.veteransport.org.au.

As a volunteer for appeals you will be the face of the Appeal, interacting with the public and giving people the opportunity to support the appeal. By giving them poppies in exchange for donations you will help raise funds to support our veterans.

You will work alongside a great team of fellow volunteers and a team leader supporting you. It will be a day of both commemoration and fundraising , as well as communicating with the public and raising awareness of a reality too often forgotten.


Volunteer Benefits

Being part of a wonderful cause! Plus, a certificate of appreciation and a day full of respect, hope and generosity.


Volunteer Locations

Various locations around the Sydney CBD.
