On 11 May a joint meeting between the boards of RSL Care and Trojan’s trek was held at the War Veterans’ Home (WVH) at Myrtle Bank. The objective of the gathering was to share information related to the aspirations and operation of both organisations. After a period of discussion, it became apparent that both shared a common aim; to assist contemporary veterans. Readers would be aware of the work of Trojan’s Trek but few may be familiar with a new WVH initiative called the Andrew Russell Veteran Living (ARVL), which is designed for contemporary veterans who are in need of urgent transit accommodation which is an emerging issue in the veteran community.
At the conclusion of the meeting a cheque for $10,000 was presented to the Trojan’s Trek Foundation by Loretta Byers, the chair of WVH.
