Member for Barker Tony Pasin has announced Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch will benefit from $30,000 in Federal Government grant funding.

Mr Pasin said this grant will enable the Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch to upgrade facilities within the Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch building.

“I congratulate the Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch for their successful application to the Federal Government’s Veteran and Community Program.” Said Mr Pasin.

“The dedication and hard work of organisations such as the Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch ensure veterans and their families receive essential services, support and opportunities allowing them to continue active roles in their local communities,” Mr Pasin said.

Mount Pleasant RSL Sub Branch Committee Member Roger Benton said the grant of $30,000 from DVA with the support of Federal Member of Barker Tony Pasin will greatly assist in enabling the 66 year old Mount Pleasant RSL building to be bought up to 21st century standards.

“The old kitchen will be completely remodelled with installation of modern cooking appliances, LPG cooktop, electric oven, induction microwave and a dishwasher.” Mr Benton said.

“The upgrade will also include a new hot water service, LED lighting and toilets will be replaced with disability standard toilet suites and hand rails. Flooring will be upgraded with tiling and all wiring and plumbing will also be upgraded throughout the building.” Mr Benton said.
