On behalf of the Veterans Centre – Sydney Northern Beaches Board of Directors, I would like to thank you for your attendance and contributions at the Resilience Luncheon 2018.

It was a memorable afternoon of insight, entertainment, amazing food, drink and of course, company. We hope you thoroughly enjoyed the experience as much as we did.

Due to your generosity we were able to raise $159,000!

We took quite a few photos on the day and thought you might be interested in seeing them: https://bit.ly/2qHVPMJ 

As our Chairman, Brig. Michael Griffin AM, stated during his address, these funds will go directly to supporting our clients by:

  • Providing wellbeing support (from those in transitioning from military to civilian life, struggling with physical or psychological conditions or in crisis)
  • Providing compensation assistance, helping clients navigate the complexities of legislation and frustratingly long processing time frames

We provide a unique service on the Northern Beaches, which is for any current or former serviceman, servicewoman or family member. Due to the demand for our services we regularly visit many of the military bases around Sydney.

Funding from last year’s Lunch enabled us to see dramatically more clients than in previous years. With the amazing result this year, we will be able to again support a larger percentage of our client need.

Thank you again for joining us for a memorable event and I hope you will be able to attend again next year.

Warmest regards

Ben Webb
Centre Manager
