The Veterans Motorcycle Club Rock Valley Chapter has been working with veterans for nearly 30 years. To ensure their great work can continue, they are seeking to upgrade their food preparation capabilities, storage space and laundry facilities.
Kevin Hogan, Federal Member for Page, today announced a grant that will support the club in these new projects.
“It is fantastic to announce a $4,860 volunteer grant for the club today. The work they do supporting our veterans is incredibly important,” Mr Hogan said.
“The group have been working in our community for decades, this funding will ensure they can continue to support our returned servicemen for years to come.”
“One of the great aspects of the club is the different people it brings together. There are Army, Navy and Airforce veterans that are all being brought together at the club. It’s a great support network for people who may not have had the opportunity if the club weren’t here.”
“Volunteers are central to so many local organisations and provide important services in our community.”
“It is important to support the efforts of these organisations and the individuals that allow them to function.”
