A new set of wheels for Nerang RSL Sub Branch
The Nerang RSL Sub Branch has expanded its welfare services, on the back of a grant from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Veteran and Community Grants Program, and welcomed a new set of wheels!
The Nerang RSL Sub Branch van, an LDV G10 People Mover, is equipped with nine seats and a spacious interior for extra ease and comfort for its guests.
Nerang RSL Sub Branch Secretary, David Barnicoat, says the Sub Branch is extremely grateful for the vehicle which will be used to assist veterans and their families.
“The Sub Branch is very thankful for the grant received which has greatly assisted us in the purchase of this new vehicle and has enabled the Sub Branch to expand our services for veterans and the local community,” said David.
“The vehicle is used to assist veterans who might require some additional help or don’t have access to the required facilities to get to places they need to be.
“The van is operated by our volunteers at the Sub Branch who pick up and drop off those who require transport, whether it is for meetings that our Sub Branch members might need to attend, or doctor’s appointments and general transportation.”
David says the vehicle is a welcomed addition to the Sub Branch, particularly with the new year ahead and plans for the Sub Branch to expand its support network.
“One of the key objectives of the Sub Branch is to continue to support veterans and their families and deliver on our commitments, while also being in a position to help out further in the community.
“The volunteers at the Sub Branch look forward to helping out where needed and having a chat along the way to those who use the service.”
