New look for Nerang RSL Sub-branch LDV G10 people mover
The Nerang RSL Sub-Branch Inc. Secretary Dave Barnicoat took possession of our new LDV G10 People Mover vehicle this year at the Nerang RSL & Memorial Club Inc.
It has since received a new-look and is the First in Queensland to be adorned with the new RSL Queensland Brand Refresh ‘logo’ and has attracted some very positive feedback.
The acceptance of this vehicle was the culmination of two years persistent and dedicated work by Sub-Branch Committee personnel through the Veteran and Community Grants (V&CG) program and approved by the Honourable Darren Chester MP, Minister for Veteran Affairs and Defence Personnel. The Grant approved was for $27,243.75 to assist with the purchase of the vehicle to
reduce social isolation.
The vehicle will be and has been used for several Welfare related tasks including transportation to and from meetings as follows:
• Hospital and Home visits
• Women’s Auxiliary Members
• Legacy Social Group
• View Club Members
• State & District Meetings
• Other Ex service Organisations; and
• Ad-Hoc and other entities as required
I would like to thank the dedicated and persistent efforts of our Grants Officer, Ron James, who spent numerous hours processing the necessary documentation, particularly once the administrative requirements were taken over by Department of Veteran Affairs whereby some of requirements or ‘goal post’ were changed. Ron was ably assisted by former Deputy President Stephen Cook, Secretary Dave Barnicoat and Assistant Treasurer Rod Bovill.
