Ingleburn RSL Club staff are hoping the club’s donation can make a big difference to people suffering from this year’s devastating bushfires and drought.
The club has dug deep to donate $75,000 to three relief efforts – ClubsNSW Bushfire Appeal, Team Rubicon’s Litres for the Land and Rural Aid.
Each of the organisations received $25,000.
Ingleburn RSL Club chief executive Glenn Cushion said he was thrilled the board of directors approved the big donation.
“Ingleburn RSL Club is a community-focussed club and we are always conscious of how we can contribute and hopefully make a difference in some way where we can,” he said.
“Recently our industry body ClubsNSW called on clubs to rally and assist financially in the face of this devastating drought and the current bushfire engulfing large parts of NSW.
“It is a privilege to represent an organisation like Ingleburn RSL Club with a board of directors who are willing to consider the plight of so many not only in our local community but across the state.
“We hope our contribution will make a difference to those facing such adverse conditions.”
Mr Cushion said the club’s thoughts were with those fighting fires and suffering from their effects.
“We hope our contribution through the organisations we have supported support you at this time,” he said.
“We hope losses are minimised and recognise and thank the wonderful members of the RFS and all others fighting the fires.”
