“The fundraising over Anzac Day is a key component of the partnership we have with Soldier On and will be an annual effort,” says Jeff House, chief executive of ClubsACT.

“ClubsACT is very proud to partner with Soldier on and we see this as building on the already strong links between veterans, service men and women and the organisations that support them.”

Twenty-seven clubs supported Soldier On through the sale of products from The Military Shop as well as through public donations.

“The Military Shop are proud ambassadors for Soldier On and to be able to work closely with them to provide a cash donation as well as raise the profile of a great charity has been an easy decision” says Jeff.

“Despite tough times in the club sector, Anzac Day will always remain a special day and it’s still an easy decision for many of our clubs to support a charity like Soldier On”.

John Bale, CEO at Soldier On, said the funds would go a long way to helping set up family activities, provide educational opportunities to those who would benefit, fund free psychological care for veterans and the families and much more in the ACT.
