Yea-Kinglake RSL has been allocated $40,000 in veterans’ funding.
“Our funding application requested $50,000 to enable the Yea-Kinglake RSL Sub-Branch to refurbish the front entrance to the RSL Hall in Snodgrass St, Yea,” said Jeffrey Swain, President of the Sub-Branch.
“The purpose of the upgrade is to enhance the safety and well being of veterans, widows and visitors who use the hall by improving the access, especially for the elderly and disabled.
“The Sub-Branch is most appreciative of receiving this funding and wishes to thank all those community organisations which supported our application.
“We will now review our plans as we will need to look at options to raise the remaining $10,000 needed to complete the intended works.,” Mr Swain said.
