Round Two winners announced in Local Heroes Grants
Round two of Andrew Powell’s Local Heroes Grants have been announced and another four community groups in Glass House have been presented with a cheque for $250.
Designed to provide a bit of a helping hand to community groups or individuals participating in local, state, national or international endeavours, Andrew Powell’s Local Heroes grants have proven very popular since the local Member announced this program in January 2016.
“During my years representing this very special community, I have become acutely aware of how vital community groups are to our region and how tough they do it financially.
“If I can offer even a little bit of money towards their upkeep or to help purchase a new kitchen appliance or a new piece of equipment, then I am only too happy to oblige.
Winners for Round Two:
Beerburrum School of Arts Association – to maintain their grounds at the community Hall
Palmwoods Scout Cub Pack – to help get a group of cubs to Cuboree in September
Woodford Bowls Club – to purchase a new set of junior bowls
Witta Rec Club – to assist their planning for Witta Fest 2016
“The best part of this grant program is that I have the opportunity to catch up with members from these community groups and personally congratulate them on their grant.
“They really are always so grateful to have been recognised in this way and are excited by what this small financial assistance can do for their club.”
The remaining rounds for 2016 are –
Round 3 – Monday 13 June
Round 4 – Monday 15 August
Round 5 – Monday 10 October
Round 6 – Monday 12 December
