Goondiwindi Regional Volunteer groups get much needed support…

leave a comment »

Six volunteer groups in the Regional Council area have received funding under the Federal Government’s Volunteer Small Equipment Grant. The Goondiwindi AFL club will receive $1,500, the Goondiwindi Hospital Auxiliary $2,170, the Lions Club of Inglewood $3,170, Roos Goondiwindi Soccer Club $2,400, Texas Golf Club $3,978.90 and the Yelarbon State School P&C $3,108.75.

Now this is a Federal grant and the State Government have a similar grant open at the moment closing 3rd December for up to $5,000.  There is a post on this on this web blog.

My advice to community groups in our region is to have a go at this funding.  $5,000 can go a long way when you are a small community organisation.

Congratulations to those clubs that were successful and to those that weren’t.. keep trying and don’t give up.

And a side note we can only wish all our volunteer groups were made up of  young people as pictured above!
