Volunteering for Fundraising Appeals

Our appeals raise critical funds for RSL DefenceCare to support veterans and their families during time of injury, illness or crisis.

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

Our next appeal is the POPPY APPEAL on 8 and 11 November in Sydney CBD locations.

With your help, we can lend a helping hand to thousands of veterans and their families.

As a volunteer you will be the face of RSL NSW, 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.
