The Last Post Project invites musicians of all ages and instruments to join with us in creating a unique event in commemoration of ANZAC Day 2021. By registering, you will join with the many who will sound the “Last Post” across the country on this important day. This project is also open to schools and other groups.
Musicians can participate by registering their interest via the registration form at the bottom of this page. Skunwkorks will hold a number of workshops in March and April to teach participants to play the Last Post and Rouse; the required drills and protocols; and the meaning of the Anzac Day service.
Each participant will be provided with their own dedicated sponsorship web page to which they will direct their sponsors for donations (participants can use a pseudonym on the their web page if they wish). The proceeds of the sponsorships will be donated to the Womens Veterans Network Australia.
If you would like to be a sponsor for this project but do not personally know one of the musicians you can go straight to the sponsorship page and choose a participant to sponsor.
On Anzac Day participants will play The Last Post at dawn (6am) in their driveway. With COVID restrictions causing reduced or cancelled Anzac Day services this is a meaningful way we can acknowledge our service men and women and provide practical support for our veterans. Participants may also wish to play at their school's Anzac service or other community centre (church, retirement home etc.).
Women Veterans Network Australia are about connecting past and present Women of Defence with resources, support & information to live an empowered & fulfilling life. Women have unique transitional challenges because of their role in the military and society. They experience deployment and reintegration different than men.
Women Veterans Network Australia is the only organisation in Australia that is solely focused on the wellbeing of female veterans. We reach multiple women, communities and organisations in metro, regional, rural and remote locations across Australia.
Established in 2013, Mates4Mates has become one of the country’s leading charities providing physical, psychological, and social support services to veterans and their families impacted by service.
Their services can be accessed nationally through purpose-built Family Recovery Centres in North Queensland, South East Queensland and Tasmania, and outreach areas and via online services. Select services can also be accessed in the Northern Territory, with a Veteran and Family Wellbeing Centre opening in 2022.
Each year, thousands of veterans and their families reach out to Mates4Mates to see a psychologist, seek help with a physical injury with the support of our exercise physiologists, or to simply connect with other like-minded people to reduce isolation.
