Fishers IGA’s Darryl Doherty and Rose McPhail present a cheque to Tatura RSL president Robert Mathieson.
The donation, which was presented by Fishers staff Darryl Doherty and Rose McPhail in December, was accepted by RSL president Robert Mathieson.
Mr Doherty said the donation was made by Fishers IGA managing director Alan Fisher on behalf of himself and the company.
‘‘As an ex-serviceman and RSL member, I made a request to Alan on behalf of the RSL and he was more than happy to provide the donation,’’ Mr Doherty said.
‘‘Fishers IGA was hoping to be involved in last year’s RSL Goods and Services Auction but was unable to do so at the time, so made a donation instead.
‘‘The donation is just one of the many ways Fishers IGA is happy to support the Tatura community.’’
Mr Doherty said the company understands how hard it is to win a Victoria Cross, and was happy to offer its support to the appeal.
In thanking Alan Fisher and Fishers IGA staff for the donation, Mr Mathieson said the appeal, which has passed the $150 000 mark, is ongoing and donations, both large and small, would be most welcome.
He said work on the project is continuing and it’s hoped to have the Private Robert Mactier VC statue put up in coming months.
