The VABT assists members of the performing arts profession on a private and confidential basis. However, from time to time, those we assist wish to share their experience. The VABT Committee of Management generously thanks those who have provided these testimonials.

I asked for an angel and one came…

I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the assistance you’ve given me. Above and beyond. Thank you all so very much.

What a wonderful group of people you all are! I find it difficult to express my admiration for you all and the work that you do to help our comrades in crisis. It is selfless; it is gracious; it is the work of angels. Bless you all

Asking for assistance is not easy for performers because we are so used to giving of ourselves. I cannot thank the VABT committee enough for all your love and support in my time of need. I am grateful beyond words.

To all you great people… It will help me so much. Thank you from me and my family…

Please accept our warmest thanks for your kind wishes and unbelievable gift. It was very moving – we both cried! When the dust settles we will contact you and for as long as I have breath, we will be rattling the can for the Victorian Actors’ Benevolent Trust. Once again, thank you and thank you to your wonderful committee. All my love and best wishes to you all.

A huge thank you to the VABT for your support during our time of need. It's a real credit to your organisation and membership that the VABT is able to function as effectively, and with true generosity, in the current economic environment.

To all you great people...Thank you so much for the opportunity to go to the Gowler Foundation. It will help me so much. Thank you from me and my family

I want to extend a huge thank you to the VABT for your support of our fundraiser last month. The work of your committee members and team of volunteers is incredible. You came to our assistance with such care during a very difficult time and helped towards the financial costs of Patrick’s treatment.

Your generous contribution means the world to us and the support that we’ve received has been truly heart-warming. Words can’t describe how grateful, moved and appreciative we are.
