Melton RSL organisers are gearing up for the 2018 Anzac Appeal.

Veterans and volunteers will be selling Anzac badges in the community to raise vital funds for men and women who have served their country.

Melton RSL president Ian Lawrey said he is confident the Melton community will once again generously support the RSL’s annual Anzac Appeal.

“Our RSL volunteers, many of them veterans, are ready to offer a variety of Anzac Appeal badges,” he said.

“The high level of energy and commitment shown by our sub-branch volunteers as they raise the much-needed funds is truly humbling.

“Each and every volunteer is determined to get into the community and not only sell Anzac Appeal badges, but to share their stories and experiences.”

RSL Victoria appeals manager Peter Smith said assistance will be provided in a variety of forms.

“It can include assistance such as medical bills, emergency home repairs, food vouchers and relief from social isolation,” he said.

Badges can be purchased from your local RSL sub-branch, volunteer collectors in the community and shopping centres.
