EARLY CHRISTMAS BOOST FOR IPSWICH AND SOMERSET REGION VETERANS

December 22, 2017

Member for Blair, Shayne Neumann MP, congratulated Vice-President John Robinson on the RSL’s success in the Veteran and Community Grants (V&CG) program.

 “This grant will help the RSL to purchase chairs, games and a coffee machine to enhance activities provided to the veteran community,” Mr Neumann said.

 “The Kilcoy Sub-branch of the RSL is an invaluable provider of support to returned service personnel in the Ipswich and Somerset Region,”

 “They provide services which enrich the lives of local veterans by helping them to remain independent, healthy and active, and by reducing social isolation, particularly in old age.”

 Funding provided under the V&CG program aims to support activities and services to enhance health and wellbeing and improve the independence and quality of life for members of the veteran community.
