O.N.E. hopes to raise a million euro for retired defence force members


A major fundraising campaign gets underway today aiming to vastly increase the funds available to help retired members of the defence forces.

The Organisation for National Ex-service Personnel hopes that this year's Fuschia appeal will raise more than one million euro between now and next Saturday.

O.N.E. managed to raise just €280 last year.

CEO Ollie O'Connor says funding is urgently needed for a wide range of resources for ex-service personnel.
