Veterans Health Week – 2016


In conjunction with Veterans’ Health Week 2016, and fitting in with this year’s theme of Social Connection, North Bondi RSL Sub-Branch together with the Club and proud sponsors, Let’s Go Surfing, Nourishing Pantry & Nudie, are offering:  FREE surfing lessons & nutrition talks for veterans, current and former serving members, their families, friends and carers.


North Bondi RSL Sub-Branch aims to assist, nurture & grow with the members of our Sub-Branch. We have a particular emphasis on the younger veterans and their families given the very nature of our demographic, geography and the members we attract.

At North Bondi we offer assistance to those wounded on operations, we provide comfort parcels to those on duty around the world, offer pension officers and advocates for those wanting to make a claim for an entitlement and provide many different mechanisms to support those who are doing it tough.

Fitting in with this year theme, Social Connection: We believe a person’s social connection to their peers is essential for an individual’s health at all ages. Engaging in social activities and connections are vital for an individual’s health and well being.

With the aim of raising awareness of, and encourage participation in activities that promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of all veterans, current and former serving  members, their families, friends and carers, we think the surf lesson and healthy lunch will fit in perfectly.

At North Bondi we think by bringing people together to find a common goal is a powerful way to foster connection. Add in some waves and wetsuits & physical activity and you’ve got a great chance of creating a bond that’s pretty hard to break. Designed for absolute beginners (unless they tell us otherwise), the surf lesson will give us the chance to treat our members, their families and cares to something really special. By getting our members up and riding the surf we hope to get them energised and pumped to take on whatever challenges they face on dry land.

The launch event will be held on Monday 24th October at 8:00am on the North Bondi Beach promenade followed by a casual, healthy breakfast in the North Bondi RSL Club.

Lessons & Sessions will be run at specific times during the week.  Hurry, as there are limited places available.
