Poppy Day Appeal

Poppy DayANZAC Day (25 April) is observed in New Zealand as a day of commemoration for the 2,721 New Zealand soldiers who died during the eight-month Gallipoli Campaign. It is also an opportunity to honour returned servicemen and women.

Members of the Otahuhu and Papatoetoe Returned Services Associations will be selling ANZAC remembrance poppies at the airport on 23 and 24 April. Give a gold coin donation and wear a poppy to show your respect for those who died at war.
