Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell, has just announced the winners of the fourth and final round of his 2019 ‘Local Heroes’ grants.
“These grants are designed as a way of thanking and helping individuals and groups in our Glass House communities who are trying to better themselves and the community around them,” Mr Powell explained.
In no particular order, the winners are:
- Mooloolah Public Hall Association Inc – putting the money towards their annual Christmas carols which are being held on Friday 20th December. This is a free community event, run entirely by volunteers, so if you’re in the neighbourhood please swing by and share in the festive spirit.
- Woodford State School – some of the secondary classes have recently created a Chess Club and have begun competing against other schools. Their grant money will go towards purchasing more chess kits and some digital chess clocks/timers.
- Tibro’s Netball Club Inc – Tibro’s netball stars will be using their grant to purchase new equipment such as match balls for their Saturday games.
- Maleny Street Christmas Carnival – Maleny Commerce will be putting their money towards the general running of the Street Christmas Carnival, particularly to the provision of waste bins and rubbish collection.
“I was really happy to see these groups put themselves forward for a Local Heroes grant as I’ve watched them all work tirelessly throughout the year to better our communities.”
“$250 sometimes makes all the difference and allows them to host an event, purchase materials, ease financial strain or simply keep on doing what they do.”
“The closing dates for my 2020 rounds will be on my website early next year, so keep your eyes peeled on https://www.andrewpowell.com.au. You have to be in it to win it!” Mr Powell concluded.
