The RHRL Command HQ in Nain this first quarter of 2015 has been heavily involved in preparations for the PHR 45th Anniversary, which is to take place over the PHR designated Anniversary Celebration long weekend of April 25 & 26.

Some items of clothing and household goods were still collected and we are pleased to say, handed to charity outlets in the region for distribution to those who can best make use of them.

This quarter also saw a report from the small French unit, the 1st Michaux Platoon . They informed us that over the winter period they had been able to supply temporary accommodation for a number of families that were in great need. Winter seems to be the time when the Platoon has most opportunities to assist those in need and they certainly provide the assistance and support where they are able. It would be nice to see this unit expand in numbers, even another unit started in France so if you are reading this and interested in helping your fellow citizens in France who have need of assistance, then please contact us in the RHRL Command HQ by emailing phr.rhrl@principality-hutt-river.org and lets have a chat. Same goes no matter where you may live and whether you would be on your own or have friends who would like to join with you, we are looking for those interested in providing assistance in local areas wherever you may be located.

In HRH Service,
Board of Officers - RHRL Command HQ

 

1st Barton Platoon
(Perth, WESTERN AUSTRALIA)

I am pleased to supply the quarterly report for January – March 2015, from the Royal Hutt River Legion (RHRL) – 1st Barton Platoon.

In spite of their many responsibilities all members of the platoon, and supporters, contributed to our priorities.

Sgt. Amanda Casselton has continued to play a leading role in providing gifts for socially isolated seniors. Feedback from Amaroo Retirement Village indicates that these gifts were greatly appreciated by the recipients. Sgt Casselton also made a significant contribution to the platoon’s response to the Northcliffe bushfire, when we donated a quantity of toiletries, toys and children’s books to the Manjimup CWA, to replace material distributed to people evacuated due to the emergency. Lastly Sgt. Casselton’s participation was invaluable in our providing Easter eggs and DVDs to Mary Smith Women’s Refuge.

Cpl. Lisa “Aliyah” Oliver’s ability to contribute to the Platoon was circumscribed by pregnancy and birth. In spite of this she remained active, helping to donate magazines to the Manjimup Medical Centre, assisting with the delivery of magazines to the Manjimup Public Library and with gifts for socially isolated seniors.
Activities January to March 2014.
