Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith, met with Mr Xolani Maloi, Facility Manager of RSL LifeCares Governor Phillip Manor, Penrith to announce their successful application for funding through the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership Program.
“I am pleased to announce that the RSL LifeCare will receive a grant of $10,000 under the 2014 Community Building Partnership Program to create a War Museum,” said Stuart Ayres.
The Master Plan of RSL LifeCare includes establishing a War Museum in each of its Villages to provide valuable and informative information regarding our military history. The displays will include items such as service medals, photographs, war time uniforms and other items of historical significance from the Army, Navy and Air Force.
Mr Maloi said RSL LifeCare is thrilled to be receiving this funding which will be used toward the betterment of the Penrith Village.
“The creation of this museum will provide a space for the residents and visitors to recognise and reflect on the Australians that have served and are still serving our country,” added Stuart Ayres.
