After a busy year of fundraising activities the Currumbin RSL Women’s Auxiliary has made a record donation of $9,500 to the Veterans Support Centre.
The Currumbin Women’s Auxiliary raised funds throughout 2018 by donating their time to host events, sell ANZAC badges, Remembrance Poppies and market day tables. The group made the donation to the Veterans Support Centre at a recent presentation at Currumbin RSL.
The funds raised by the group go to providing valuable services for our Veterans community including for the Young Veterans Support Services program.
The Currumbin Young Veteran Support Services (YVSS) program is the first of its kind for any RSL in south east Queensland. The program offers social, education and employment opportunities for young veterans.
Currumbin RSL Women’s Auxiliary President Cynthia Munro said, “It is great to have a record fundraising year. Our fund raising activities once again topped previous years mainly due to the popularity of fashion parades in May and October and our trading table and raffles also made good profits.”
“I thank all the ladies for their efforts because without the time and effort they put it none of this would be possible.”
