On 11 May a joint meeting between the boards of RSL Care and Trojans 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 Trojans 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 Trojans Trek Foundation by Loretta Byers, the chair of WVH.

The excellent relationship between the Foundation and RSL care was further enhanced recently with a very generous donation to the cause. This is not the first time RSL Care SA has assisted Trojans Trek and confirms the intent of the RSL Care Board to embrace their philosophy which is to provide care and support for the benefit of the ex-service and wider community”. The funds will be used on the upcoming SA treks for men and women.
