Program Update: Road Trauma Support WA Summer 2016December 6, 2016
On Sunday 20th November 2016, Road Trauma Support WA held a commemorative event for the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, at the Fremantle Sailing Club.
The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year, to remember the millions killed and injured on our roads across the globe. It is also a day on which we pause to thank our emergency service personnel for the amazing work they do and to reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster to families, communities, organisations and governments at all levels.
We were honoured to have many distinguished attendees who also recognise the importance of supporting all of those affected by Road Trauma and the people who work alongside them.
Deputy Premier, The Hon. Liza Harvey MLA, Ms Teresa Williams Director of Governance and Finance at the Road Safety Commission, Dr Sudhakar Rao Director of Trauma Services at Royal Perth Hospital and Patron of Road Trauma Support WA, Bev Abela Volunteer Educator at Road Trauma Support, Janet Augustinsen Multi faith officer from Curtin University and most importantly our clients and their families who have all been affected by road trauma in some way.
Road Trauma Support WA has held this this event each year since its inception in 2014 and we would like to thank all of those who took the time to come together at this very special event and to wish them a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
