Funding for Balmoral RSL upgrade

The Balmoral RSL Sub-Branch has received $8,646 for electrical and plumbing upgrades under the latest round of the Veterans Capital Works Grant Program.

The Nationals Member for Lowan Emma Kealy has congratulated the sub-branch for securing the grant to undertake the works – a project she says is long overdue.

“I am delighted that the club’s ongoing advocacy for funding to maintain and improve the Balmoral RSL has paid dividends,” Ms Kealy said.

“Led by President James Parker, the club has been very proactive in sourcing grants over recent years, with successful applications including a grant for a new verandah and for the poppy sculpture at the Balmoral Memorial Site.

“The RSL plays a vital role in helping us to honour and acknowledge those who have served, died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars, armed conflicts and peacekeeping operations, as well as providing vital support for our veterans and their families.

“I salute our brave servicemen and women for their service and dedication to the country we love and offer them and our fantastic RSL branches my full support to ensure we never forget the service and sacrifice they have made.”
