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.

RSL Logo_[P]In the spirit of their legacy, RSL Care both in QLD and SA continue to promote wellbeing for our fellow Australians and veterans.

In August 2015, RSL Care will proudly sponsor Trojan’s Trek in its premier Queensland event.

RSL Care’s legacy with the veteran community is long and rich. They have provided services to veterans for over 75 years, opening their first veterans’ hostel in 1938. As they have grown and developed over the years to welcome all Australians who need their services, RSL Care have maintained their commitment to working with the ex-Service community.
