Mates4Mates is a not-for-profit organisation that supports Australian Defence Force (ADF) Veterans (and their families) who have been injured as a result of their military service. Mates4Mates are holding an end of year event this Saturday 8 December 2018 at the Bluff, Devonport that is open to all ADF Veterans and their families. There will be a ‘come and try’ Stand up Paddle boarding offered by Tidal Tours, a food van ‘What the Fork’, a Mates4Mates merchandise stand, some activities for kids and families and lots of friendly faces.
This is the first time that Mates4Mates have held an event in the northern half of the state and we hope to attract ADF Veterans of all ages and their families. We would like to get the word out there so that Veterans know that there is support available. They may not need any support now, but they may need it in the future and it is so important that they know about us as an organisation that they can reach out to. This is a free event and you do not need to be an ‘inducted mate’ – all ADF Veterans and their families are welcome.
