Recruit Course 115 has partnered with the Firefighters Charity Fund to donate $2000 to Soldier On - Helping our Wounded Warriors. Today they handed over a cheque to Sergeant Ashley Boxall and his PTSD assistance dog Ivy, trained by us.
The charity organisation supports Australian service men and women and emergency services responders who have been wounded, physically or psychologically in contemporary conflicts or as first responders.
