Federal Page Kevin Hogan (Nationals) has complimented REDinc on its new eight-seater mini-bus, which was funded by a $19,000 federal government grant.
‘This eight-seater bus is already making a real difference in the lives of more than 200 people with disabilities and their families who use services provided by REDinc,’ he said.
‘REDinc came to me asking for help in transporting its clients because they simply couldn’t go on outings, which made it hard to interact with the broader community.
‘I understood the problem and organised this grant to purchase the bus. More than 200 clients and their families are now making use of this bus.
REDinc’s chief executive Mari Gale said the bus was ‘already improving the lives of its clients’.
‘The bus has meant that REDinc participants now have far wider and easier access to the local community,’ she said.
‘That means excursions, transport to and from places like the gym, horse riding programs, swimming, interstate expos and conventions.
‘None of this would be possible without this amazing and generous donation for which we are truly thankful,’ Ms Gale said.
