Townsville Floods

Hello Fellow Sappers,

I write to all in my capacity as a Director of the RAE Foundation.

None of us could have missed the devastating effect of the recent flood event in Townsville. It therefore wouldn’t surprise you to know that around 40 Sapper families of members of 3 CER were impacted. 3 CER has been offered support for these families from around the Corps and have set up a RTF facility for that support. They have also reached out to the RAE Foundation for support. The RAE Foundation has today offered CO 3 CER a $10,000 immediate impact donation to support families. The Directors have also offered the Foundation’s charitable status as a means by which donors can provide further support to affected families. Donations to the RAE Foundation will receive tax-deductible status and the Foundation will provide raised funds to 3 CER in a coordinated manner, prioritized with the Regimental leadership.

Donations can be made to the Foundation for flood relief purposes using the following details:

BSB: 033 508Acc: 1400 72

Name: Royal Australian Engineers Found

Reference: First name Surname 19FR

A tax-deductible receipt will be issued by the Foundation. Can I ask that we all get the word out around the Corps family and support 3 CER at this time of need.

Cheers,

Wayne Budd W.G. BUDD

PETITION

The RAE Association (Vic) recently received this message from the VVA (Vic).  It is published along with a link for the interest of members.  The RAE Association (Vic) does not have a policy on this issue at this point in time.  The attached message and link are published for the interest of members and readers.

Hi Everyone,  Attached is a Petition request relating to the above matter. The Civilian Medical Staff served in Vietnam from 1964 until 1972.

Although having served their time in a War zone they are still not entitled to a GOLD CARD. We ask for your help in this matter by Signing

this petition and hopefully making this a reality for these wonderful people who took the time and Volunteered to helping others. We ask also

to forward this to family, friends and anyone else you feel is able in making this possible.

 

Kindest regards
