HALF a million poppies are expected to be sold as part of the annual Poppy Appeal.

Volunteers will be selling red poppies from late October in support of current and former service men and women.

“Year in, year out, our community rallies together to support the Poppy Appeal in the lead up to Remembrance Day,” Bendigo District RSL Sub-Branch president Cliff Richards said.

“I would like to thank the local community who support our Sub-Branch and wear their poppy in November.” 

Mr Richards also acknowledged the efforts of the RSL members and volunteers.

Poppies will be available for purchase from RSL Sub-Branches, Woolworths and Officeworks stores, and from volunteer collectors.
