Nambour RSL Club Joins Glamel Trek
Wednesday 13th of May really was hump day for Nambour RSL Club when they participated in the landmark charity event Montrose Access Glamel Trek 2015. The Club partnered with Montrose Access in their unique fundraising event designed to raise national awareness of the significant needs of children and young adults with a disability.
RSL Services and Citizens Club Nambour General Manager Suzanne Long explains why the Club was so keen to get involved. ‘We immediately identified that GlamelTrek was a creative opportunity to support young locals with a disability. The Club plays a leading role in community activations throughout the year and is very proud to be part of this initiative.’
‘Once we said yes it was then time to look at the big questions. One hump or two? What training do we need and how comfortable are they! ’
The Club was one of several local businesses involved in the trek with Suzanne identifying how healthy the Sunshine Coast community is in getting behind important causes.
‘It is great to see businesses getting behind sponsorship events like these. The Club has always had the mantra that when we work together, play together and care together, it’s the community that profits. This same ethos is what drives fundraising initiatives like our Club’s Community Grants program’
The Grants Program will see $60,000 distributed to community groups throughout Nambour and surrounding districts. The program assists sporting, educational and community groups from all walks of life. Announcements were made early this week on the successful applicants for this years grants. This program plus sponsorships and partnerships like Glamel Trek, has seen the Club contribute over 2.2million to the local community in recent years.
‘GlamelTrek is certainly one of the most creative fundraising events we have been involved with and we congratulate Montrose Access on bringing this event to the Coast and continuing to offer the critical services they do to those with a disability.’
