Scouting NZ support at ANZAC Day commemorations

On Friday 25 April, Scouts across New Zealand will be once again lending their support to RSA members in ANZAC Day commemorations

Scouts will this year be helping with the street appeals and sale of commemorative poppies and will be involved in ANZAC Day ceremonies. “We are proud to stand alongside those men and women who served across all branches of the Services and to remember their contribution to New Zealand,” says Chris Hooper, CEO of Scouting New Zealand.

A number of young Scouts will attend dawn services on Anzac Day in order to assist with on-the-day logistics. At some ceremonies, Scouts will march alongside RSA members while at others, Scouts will offer support from the sidelines.
