Why not give a local person a break through work placement or school-based apprenticeship?
During these extremely trying financial hard times for many in our Benalla community, the receiving of a Vinnies Christmas Hamper for the Family and Christmas Gifts for the Children is sometimes their only ray of sunshine for an otherwise depressing time during the Festive Season.
It’s time to celebrate our seniors and to do this, there will be 17 Seniors Week events across Benalla Rural City.
Benalla will host the Law Enforcement Torch Run (LETR) Victoria - supporting Special Olympics Australia in Benalla on Tuesday 18 September.
Victoria Police will host the Law Enforcement Torch Relay (LETR) Special Olympics awareness tour on Tuesday 18 September 2018 from 2.30pm - 4pm (the tour will arrive in Benalla from Shepparton). To herald the tour's arrival it will make its way from the cnr of Bridge and Smyth Street (KFC building) along Bridge Street to the Benalla Library at 2 Fawckner Drive. The walk/run event will culminate with the lighting of a cauldron by a Council representative and a nominated community representative. The tour will then depart Benalla for Wangaratta. The Victoria Police are coordinating the event. John Elks from the Victoria Police, Legal Policy Unit , LETR Committee is the coordinator of the event.
On September 30th DGB Media will be live streaming racing from Winton Raceway.
