Donations for Anzac Day Appeal support youth education

THE Anzac Day Appeal in Queensland has kicked off with a $15,000 contribution from the Newman Government.

Launching the annual appeal with Veteran Affairs Assistant Minister Glen Elmes, Anzac Day Commemoration Committee president Arthur Burke said funds raised through donations and badge sales for the appeal helped with their activities.

"Funds raised through the appeal support the committee's efforts in promoting the Spirit of Anzac through youth education, veteran welfare, war memorial construction and restoration and assisting with a range of commemoration services and legacy projects," he said.

The committee assists in organising the annual dawn service at Anzac Square in Brisbane.
