GM vs Directors & Staff…Who will win?

Throughout the month of March, the team at Seven Hills RSL will be walking to support Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation and help raise much needed awareness and funds for those living with Duchenne & Becker muscular dystrophy.

Joe Bayssari, our General Manager, has set a challenge for himself and our directors and staff and has vowed to match the number of km’s that our Seven Hills RSL team collectively walk. That means if we collectively walk 400km, Joe himself has to walk 400km! To make things a bit fairer, we have given him a bit of a headstart.

Joe started his 2022 Walk 4 Duchenne on the 1st March and our team will be completing our walk on treadmills located in our Club reception area from Friday 25th March. Joe will be walking each day, at different times of the day to represent that the impact of Duchenne muscular dystrophy is 24/7 and the care required is around the clock.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy is a muscle wasting condition which predominately affects boys and in very rare cases girls. To date there is no cure.   Any donation no matter how big or small, will go a long way in helping us find a cure for Duchenne and Becker muscular dystrophy.

Please click on the below link and donate under “Team Seven Hills RSL”.

You can follow the progress of this challenge on our Club Facebook page or via the Club News page on our website.​​

Renovation Update / February 2022

Seven Hills RSL Renovation
Stage 1 of our Club renovation is complete and since the new year, works have been underway to build the new concrete footings and block wall foundations, ready to support the new concrete slabs for the future kitchen and dining areas.
Demolition has continued around the perimeter of the old building to clear the way for the new works.
The old roof is being kept for now to keep the site dry and to protect the lower level reception area from being flooded in a big rain event.
Our carpenter has been building the raised floor for the future sports bar area.
Design of the structural steel roof framing is almost complete, to enable the steel to be ordered and fabricated in time for when the concrete slab is poured.
Stay tuned for more renovation updates by keeping an eye on our social pages or visiting the Club News section of our website
