Santa came early with Powell’s Local Heroes Grants

Member for Glass House Andrew Powell has recently congratulated the round four winners of his 2022 Local Heroes Grants.

“These are the final round of winners for 2022 and what a good bunch they were!” said Mr Powell.

“I hope these grants help spread a little Christmas cheer in what is arguably the most expensive month of the year.”

In no particular order, here are the final 2022 Local Heroes:

  • Rory Collins, Javelin athlete
    Funding contribution for Rory to represent the state for Javelin and pay for his levy and apparel.
  • Area 3 Toastmasters
    Financial assistance to hold their annual conference that was held at the end of October.
  • PCYC Emergency Services Cadets Woodford Unit
    Financing their new team for educational training. Voluntary Adult Leaders will be visiting and teaching young people aged 12 – 17 to become Emergency Services Personnel later in life.
  • Maleny & District Chamber of Commerce
    Funding for the Maleny Christmas Festival.

“I’m especially a fan of the Toastmasters. Area 3 has four local Clubs – Glasshouse Mountains, Petrie, Caboolture and Bribie Island.”

“They host educational sessions on leadership and communication and are a fantastic resource for anyone wanting to improve their public speaking, confidence and more.”

Funding will of course continue in the new year. In fact, you can apply now for the first round of 2023 at and the first winners of the year will be chosen at the end of February.
