The Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association (RNZRSA) has made the decision to cancel any public Anzac Day events this year and is postponing its national Poppy Day appeal. RNZRSA National President BJ Clark says: "It's our responsibility to remember and acknowledge those that have served but also to ensure our members and the public are kept safe."
