Keep the ANZAC spirit alive this April 25

Covid-19 and quarantine won’t stop this year’s ANZAC day commemorations. Mark this important day by holding a private dawn vigil.

At 5.30 this Saturday morning, Pickwick employees and their families are encouraged to join Aussies and Kiwis across the globe in a special ‘iso’ dawn service.

While traditional commemorative services are cancelled in line with current health advice, we are being encouraged to mark this important day at home privately and by watching the National Ceremony broadcast live from the Australian War Memorial at 5.30am.

The Returned and Services League (RSL) is also asking Australians to adapt and observe the occasion a little differently this year. Through their Light up the Dawn campaign you can pledge to honour those who have ‘served and sacrificed’ or simply grab a candle then stand in your driveway at 6.00am on ANZAC Day to conduct your own service.

ANZAC Day has a different level of meaning for each of us. For some Pickwick employees is a deeply personal time.
