The 6 RAR Association is a not-for-profit organisation that helps continue the camaraderie and family values forged as part of our members service in the Sixth Battalion Royal Australian Regiment.   Our membership includes current and ex-service personnel and their families.   We hold reunions every five years to gather, reminisce and rekindle friendships; make new friendships and provide support for our 6 RAR family.

Our 2020 Reunion will be run across the weekend of 5-7 June 2020, this particular period will commemorate the forming of the Brisbane based 6th Battalion on 6 June 1965, the 20th anniversary of the Battalions involvement in East Timor and the 10th anniversary of the Battalion’s involvement in MTF1 Afghanistan.  It is expected to be a major event and will attract a great number of soldiers who proudly served their nation.  We expect up to 2000 members and ex-members of 6th Battalion (and family) will want to be part of this Brisbane Reunion and the many activities and commemorative events planned.

In the lead up to the event, and at the event, we will be running raffles/auctions to help cover the cost of the event; and reduce the cost of attending for our members.   We have sourced donations from businesses across Australia for these fundraising events and those companies are listed below.  

We are very grateful for the generous donations from the following businesses without whom these auctions, the fundraising and our 2020 Reunion would not be possible:

Rock Baby Himalayan Salt Lamp (Plug In)

Rock Baby Himalayan Salt Lamp (Plug In)

Himalayan Salt Rock Baby Night Light (Plug In) is ideal for nurseries or cramped desk spaces or work stations. Salt rock crystal is known for its ability to ionise the air. Negative ions are essential to our health and welling. Highly polluted areas often have a low negative ion balance, which leads to a feeling of reduced health and wellbeing.

Have you ever noticed that your feeling of well being is intensified in pure mountain air, a walk down the beach, or a walk in the bush? This is due to the higher concentration of negative ions in these surroundings.

Besides air ionization and negative ion production, salt lamps (illuminated by a light bulb) produce a beautiful, natural glow of different colours and shades, from orange to yellow, that is pleasing to the eyes, mind and soul. This light colour glow ionises and freshens the air creating a calming meditative balance and a special atmosphere of tranquility, peace and well being.

Each comes with an Australian approved cord and globe.

Approximate dimensions 12 x 12 x 12cm

Benefits:

  • Removes mold, bacteria and allergens from the air
  • Reductions of electromagnetic radiation, which is known to increase stress and decrease immune system
  • Assists with asthma and allergy symptoms
  • Promotes quality sleep
  • Produces negative ions which reduce anxiety
