Projects

In 2019 we presented the Bendigo CFA (Country Fire Authority) with a kids helicopter named ‘Rosie’.
This helicopter is to help keep the kids entertained when the CFA talk to parents about fire safety measures at local school fetes, markets etc.

It is one of 2 helicopters that the BDRSL Sheds Health & Wellbeing program made as part of our ongoing commitment to giving back to our community.
   

*Under Victorian legislation, a veteran is someone who has served, or is serving, in the Armed Forces of Australia, or the forces of another Commonwealth country (ie: New Zealand, United Kingdom, India) or Allied (ie: United States of America, France) country. The individual does not need to have seen active/warlike service overseas to meet the definition. Both full-time/regular and part-time/reserve service falls within the criteria.

**In accordance with Branch By-Law’s regarding patriotic welfare funds monies, may only be spent on Veterans & dependants (as defined by the Branch By-Laws).
