 The Condobolin RSL Club has recently made two significant donations to local community organisations.

The first donation of $500 was awarded to the new generation of Condobolin High School model car racers, Illusion Engineering, while a second donation of $1000 was given to the Condobolin branch Can Assist for the retiling of the local palliative care unit.

RSL Treasurer, Brian Prothero, said the donations were about supporting both the youth and the elderly in the local community.

“We’re very aware of the good job Can Assist does with local residents,” he said.

“It’s a very important part of Condobolin.”

Illusion Engineering team manager, Daneil Heinrich, said the team was incredibly grateful for the donation.

“It’s- going to help us buy better material and help with travel expenses as well as uniforms,” he said.

President of Can Assist Condobolin, Judy Price, said the money would really help the hospital.

“The palliative care unit at the hospital has been flooded two years in a row,” she said.

“There’s been a lot of damage done [to the carpet].

“This will help towards getting tiles on the floor.

“It’s helping us so we don’t have to raise the money ourselves.”
