Drumroll Please … Your Final Local Heroes Winners for 2019!

28 November 2019

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.
