Forbes Country Music Club receives donation from RSL: Forbes Services Memorial Club General Manager, David Fitzgerald praised Forbes Country Music Club President, Phil Redding on Monday for the great work that has been done towards the Country Music Club this year. Being one of the club’s most successful years with the combined hard work of Secretary Helen Field, they were able to secure funding from many other major businesses this year. This paved the way for a very successful Forbes Talent Quest. This cheque will go towards next year’s Talent Quest. “I am honoured by the response and help given towards Forbes Country Music Club. This also helps us with fundraisers, where we too can give back to our community,” said Phil. Fundraising money has been donated to organisations such as the SES’s new sand bagging machine, the late John Rice fundraiser and this year’s members campout where a large amount was raised for the Cancer Council. “We are the guardians of the future. Without sponsors like the RSL, events such as the Talent Quest would be lost and there might be nothing for our future generations,” he said.
