Car poppies

by Anonymous Author

Selwyn motorists can support and remember New Zealand’s current and former service personnel in this year’s ANZAC Poppy Appeal with a poppy for their vehicle, as well as the traditional poppy.

People can get a car poppy from any Z Energy Service Station with all funds raised from sales of the large poppies going to RSA Support Services, to provide national support for past and present New Zealand Service personnel, nd their families.

RSA National President BJ Clark said displaying the poppy is a way to remember the impacts of military service on our men and women in uniform, and show respect for those serving around the world today. “Some of those we help are veterans barely in their 20s and have been physically and psychologically wounded. Others are over 100.

RSA is here to the help all — regardless of whether they are RSA members or not,” Mr Clark said. 

“This is a great way for Kiwis to show support for our soldiers, sailors and aircrew, and directly help those who have served, some of whom are in need of assistance.”

The car poppies, made of a durable rubber, and fixed with included zip-ties or suction cups, went on sale on Monday and will be available until Anzac Day or until stocks run out.
