Dandenong Basketball is backing in Dandenong-Cranbourne RSL’s Simon Bloomer OAM, who is one of the Top 6 nominees for Westfield’s Local Heroes campaign.
Mr Bloomer, awarded the Order Of Australia earlier this year, attended our ANZAC Forum for our NBL1 players this season, detailing his Vietnam war experiences and the work RSL’s do for ADF veterans in our community.
He has also volunteered his time with Carry On Victoria for over 25 years, helping in-need ADF veterans receive housing, advocacy, education, relief, and financial support.
The top three finalists for each Westfield centre will be awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation, with Simon pledging his potential grant for Carry On Victoria, allowing for the installation of security systems in their veteran housing to help them and their familes feel safe in their homes.

NOTE: Voting closes on Monday 30 August.
