The Holiday Coast Credit Union is supporting our returned veterans with a special gift.
The Holiday Coast Credit union have handed over a new Dell computer to the Returned and Services League of Australia Wauchope Sub-branch. It’s to help them with the crucial role of processing Veteran pension claims for medical conditions contributed to their role and time served in the Australian Defence forces.
HCCU CEO Neville Parsons said it is a privilege to be lending a helping hand to our returned veterans.
“We are proud to be able through our Community Partnership Grants to assist the Wauchope RSL Club Sub-branch and in particular the Pensions Officer Raymond (Ray) Knapp in his valued work in helping those servicemen and women who have given so much for their community,” said Mr Parsons.
Wauchope RSL sub-branch pensions officer, Ray Knapp said that in recent times, more complex help has been needed for our Timor, Afghanistan and Iraq veterans.
“The laptop computer will be a great asset for us to complete the work required to process the veteran pension claims,” said Mr Knapp.
“The current workload assisting 28 veterans is in various stages and is a constant average throughout the year, due to our aging Vietnam veteran population suffering increasing health issues.”
He said the Wauchope RSL Sub-branch appreciate the assistance provided by their local credit union, Holiday Coast, which again shows continued support and commitment from them to the local area.
