Vetrok 2018 - Great results for Ward 17
Vetrok went off with a blast (December 8th 2018). We had a great turn out, with kind support from many music artist, Joe Camilleri, Matt Taylor, Mike Rudd, Dream Boogie, Mike Elrington, Gradual and with a special mention to Stuart Woods of The Giants. Stu has been a part of Vetrok from its conception and continues to support us to support our Veterans with mental health issues coming back from active duties. Stu is currently serving as a member on our Vetrok committee as our Music Manger.
On the 11th of February we were able to proudly present Ward 17 of Austin Health with a cheque of $30,000 to help them with the great work they are doing there in Ward 17.
"To all the staff in Ward 17, we are so grateful for all the work you do"

Things People Say!
Jason of Victoria says,
"A proud member, supporting my brothers and sisters who served.
Been absent due to mental health issue myself, not PTSD but still a daily struggle.
We all have issues and the club stands for exactly that, glad so many people see the unseen."
Shane, President of Central Vic Chapter says,
"I am an ex service member 26 squadron and I proudly ride and raise awareness and support our Veterans shoulder to shoulder with all our non service members in our club"
Carmen and Brad of Victoria Says,
We have never served, we have had family who have but never been in a position to serve ourselves, we have always supported people who have. Dawn service has been a major part of our lives and we highly respect those who have served for our freedom.
We have recently moved to the peninsula and our circle of family has grown 10 fold since meeting the amazing men and women who are involved in Partisans ... your passion shines through in everything you guys put your minds too and that passion makes other people excited, which means the club’s objective reaches even more people. I have never served, but I’m a pharmacist who has many patients who are vets … I've seen the ones the government help a bit, the ones they help a little and the ones they don’t help at all ... what’s really missing is those people who may not have a visible physical injury or an official diagnosis of PTSD , the support system for people who just find it hard to integrate again or don’t feel 100% normal living a civilian life just isn’t there and that’s why a club like partisans is so important, no-one is left out, everyone gets support in whatever way they need, whether it be through funds raised or merely a social ride with like minded people. I am so proud to wear my Partisans T wherever I go and loudly inform people of what we stand for. The club is called Partisans, but to be a Partisan is so much more than just the name. We aspire to be members of the club as we wholeheartedly support and stand behind everything that they do.
