Colac sub-branch president Brian Lloyd said "Our Poppy Appeal will look a little bit different this year, and you may not see our RSL volunteers on the streets raising money by selling the iconic poppy badges as we normally would."

"There'll be some sellers outside supermarkets and strict COVID hygiene practices will be in place."

"But just because we may not be able to physically fundraise, doesn't mean that the need to raise fund disappears."

"We need your help jow, more than ever, if you can, a small donation - a gift of kindness - for a poppy from the Colac sub-branch or you can donate via to help change a veteran's life, every little bit counts."

The Colac RSL's Chris Potter confirmed their will be a 'small' service from 10.45am Wednesday Morning at Colac's Memorial Square, despite COVID restrictions.

"There is going to be a small service. Brian Lloyd from the RSL will speak, we'll raise the flag to half mast and play some audio out of our speakers. If you're in the area, you're invited to stop and observe. Obviously we don't want large gatherings in the square, but if everyone takes a common sense approach, you can come and pay your respects."
