Soldier On Calls on Pubs and Clubs to Support Veterans This Anzac Day

Spread the word2 (003)

This Anzac Day, Soldier On is asking pubs and clubs across Australia to support our modern-day veterans by placing donation tins on your bar counters and service areas.

Why get behind this campaign?

Since 1990, over 290,000 men and women have served our country in the Australian Defence Force. From wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to peacekeeping missions in East Timor and Rwanda, our national heroes have undertaken extraordinary tasks in defence of our nation.

But this service to our country can take a toll and some veterans struggle to readjust to a normal life. That’s where Soldier On comes in.

Who is Soldier On?

Soldier On is a national not-for-profit focused on providing veterans and their families with mental health support, employment and education support and reintegration support. These vital support services help veterans and their families overcome any impacts from their service and build successful futures.

By placing Soldier On donation tins around your establishment this Anzac Day, you will be directly supporting our younger generation of veterans. The money raised will allow us to provide more services to more veterans and families around Australia.

Soldier On is regularly profiled in the Australian media and has many high-profile ambassadors, including comedian Hamish Blake and Sunrise co-host Samantha Armytage, as well as former Prime Ministers The Hon. John Howard OC, AM, The Hon. Kevin Rudd, The Hon. Julia Gillard and The Hon. Tony Abbott MP.
