This year’s $50 ANZAC Day fundraising badge features some Bendigo inspiration.

BENDIGO has made its mark on the RSL’s latest Anzac Day fundraising badge.

The $50 badge featuring Army nurses was inspired by suggestions from RSL secretary Lisa Gellatly, pictured, with a little help from the Bendigo Weekly.

A former Army nurse herself, Ms Gellatly sent in some ideas and photographs, including a Weekly cover from 2015, to Anzac House.

When the final design was revealed and the badges produced, Ms Gellatly was told inspiration for the badge had come from her submission.
