Local groups gain Federal grant funds

Community org-anisations have shared in the Federal government’s $16 million 2013 Volunteer Grants program.

Funds, ranging between $1000 to $5000,  were shared among 16 Mid North volunteer groups, with a total of almost $50,000  awarded to assist the groups in providing a variety of community services.

Locally, Two Wells Community Centre received $4000.

Thompson Beach Progress Association  received $4978 to assist its volunteers.

“The grants will help volunteers meet the rising costs of running a not-for-profit organisation,” said Federal Member for Wakefield, Nick Champion.
