Needed boost for RSL

Gatton Star - - NEWS -

MEM­BER for Wright and As­sis­tant Min­is­ter for Roads and Trans­port Scott Bu­cholz paid a visit to the Gat­ton RSL Sub-branch ear­lier this month.

While there, Mr Bu­cholz sup­plied the sub-branch with a $13,950 BEST grant to as­sist in the many hours of vol­un­teer work the sub-branch’s vol­un­teers contribute­d.

One of the many im­por­tant ac­tiv­i­ties the RSL is in­volved in is a weekly Tues­day morn­ing ex­er­cise group.

The group has grown sig­nif­i­cantly in re­cent months and mem­bers par­take in the light cir­cuit pro­gram con­ducted at the Gat­ton Sports and Aquatic Cen­tre un­der trainer Luke Spencer.

Mr Buch­holz has at­tended one of these ses­sions and says he is look­ing for­ward to par­tic­i­pat­ing again and that pro­grams like this are vi­tal to keep­ing se­niors and re­tirees healthy and fit.

The Build­ing Ex­cel­lence in Sup­port and Train­ing grants are a pro­gram run by the Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans’ Af­fairs to sup­port or­gan­i­sa­tions in pro­vid­ing com­pen­sa­tion and wel­fare as­sis­tance to the de­fence and vet­eran com­mu­ni­ties.
