ANZAC Day is a reminder of all the lives lost at Gallipoli and every other battle, and the terrible cost of war.

The Rainbow Beach Sports, Recreation and Memorial Club acknowledge the sacrifice of our service men and women on ANZAC Day.

Each year the Club hosts a luncheon for service men and women, members and guests, with an auction that raises money for Legacy.

Afra Chappill from The Sports Club said, “On ANZAC Day we remember all the Australians who have served. Legacy is about supporting soldiers back from active service and the families of soldiers who have not returned.”

This year, the club was lucky to host many of the British 1st Battalion Royal Gurka Riflemen, who were treated to a traditional roast dinner and pavlova.

The club also acknowledges any family member who has served or is currently serving in the armed forces.

Once again, thanks to kind donations of local businesses, one hundred percent of all of the thousands of dollars raised on the day go to Legacy, for war widows and soldiers’ families.
