Our Defence Family Needs Our Support

During times like these, it is more important than ever that we all stand together and support each other. ANZAC Day is the largest fundraising time for a number of ex-service organisations and with all the restrictions it makes it harder to show your appreciation and support for veterans.Things are going to be significantly different for ANZAC Day this year, but we still want our Veterans to be remembered. There are a number of ways you can give back to the veterans who have given so much to keep our country safe:

1. Normally at this time of year you would see the familiar, smiling faces of our Cairns RSL Sub Branch members in the shopping centres or at the markets in the lead-up to ANZAC Day selling badges to raise funst in support of our veterans. You can still show your support for our Veterans and Cairns RSL Sub Branch by purchasing ANZAC Day memorabilia at our online shop https://crslsb.org.au/shop/

2. Thousands of Aussies have pledged to hold their own Dawn Service in their driveway on ANZAC Day, and we want you to take the pledge and say you’ll join them https://crslsb.org.au/events/

3. Every year at Christmas time we put up decorations. In the lead up to ANZAC Day, every year, let’s start a tradition of putting up decorations around our homes and yards in memory of our ANZAC’s.

🌟 Don’t forget to share your photos and videos with the hashtags #ANZACspirit #lighupthedawn, send them through to our Facebook page or email rebecca.milliner@crslsb.org.au

🌟 The best decorated home/yard in the Cairns region will receive a limited edition Western Front Teddy Bear.

🌟 The most creative photos will also be featured on the cover of our quarterly members magazine, Sit-Rep.
