Howick RSA is looking for volunteers for the annual Poppy Day appeal.

Senior Vice President John Titmus said the RSA is looking for location coordinators and collectors.

“We are still short of organisers and collectors with a short time to go before the RSA goes live with collectors on the streets and malls of Howick, Pakuranga, Botany and Ormiston,” Titmus said.

“This is the key event to raise funds to support our veterans with medical services where their requirements are not provided by mainstream health and social services.

“We are very lucky to have so many people supporting the Howick RSA with the Poppy Day appeal. We are still looking for a few volunteers to help with the fund raising on Friday April 22, the Poppy Day appeal.

“It falls in the school holidays so maybe you want to do two hours of collection with your daughter, son or grandchild.”

Poppy Day collectors are needed for Botany Town Centre, Botany Ti Rakau, Ormiston, Pakuranga Plaza, Howick, Meadowlands, Highland Park and Half Moon Bay.

We are asking you to contact us with your name and (cell) phone number at the RSA 534 9702 or email or contact Charmaine on 021 1455 735 if you want to volunteer for one of the following roles:

1. Collectors who will be available for a few hours for collection on Poppy Day itself;
2. Coordinators to help organise Poppy Day, available for the whole day of the Poppy Day collections. We still need organisers at Howick, Pakuranga, Botany x2 and Ormiston.
3. Administrators; available for the whole day of the Poppy Day collections.
