A lot has been happening at the Two Wells RSL recently, with the group receiving a generous $1500 donation and also supporting a local resident with the supply of a scooter.

Last month, Two Wells RSL president, Tony Flaherty, on behalf of the league accepted a cheque for $1400 from local IGA proprietors Rocco and Rosa Settimio as part of the IGA Community Chest initiative.

The community-minded pair also made a $100 personal donation to the memorial project, and through the Community Chest initiative have donated thousands to local community and sporting groups over the years.

The funds are set to go toward supporting the work being done at the Two Wells memorial, with the unique Afghanistan memorial garden on track to be unveiled by Anzac Day 2015 and restoration work to the WW1 memorial set to begin in coming months.

In other Two Wells RSL news, the group recently donated a scooter to local Two Wells resident, Donald Cohen.

The scooter was donated to the RSL by a member and was originally going to be raffled but Donald was identified as someone who could really have a better quality of life with the scooter.

Donald has a range of health and mobility issues and was restricted in what he could do after his license was revoked due to ill health.

Donald would like to thank the Two Wells RSL for the scooter and says it will improve his day-to-day life and enable him to get out and about more.
