RSA’s were formed throughout NZ when the First World War Veterans returned from battle. What was needed then was a place for them to meet, talk and socialise.

The Welfare Trusts were set up and run from within these RSA’s and Poppy money was dispersed to needy veterans for such things as glasses, dentures, wheelchairs, transport to and from Hospitals etc. Any profits made by the RSA are channelled into these funds also.

The core existence today must reflect its current members’ and community needs and activities whilst acknowledging its origins as a tribute to the past Returned Servicemen & Women.
