Six (6) community groups in the Goondiwindi region will share in nearly $156,000 in grants announced by the Queensland Government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Inglewood State Emergency Service ($31,000- mobile light tower) Goondiwindi Gun Club ($26,000 improvements), Gilbert Oval Recreation Association ($28,000 improvements) and the Inglewood Golf Club ($35,000 tractor) and Inglewood Lions Club (install softfall $16,300) and the Goondiwindi PCYC ($30,000 vehicle) are the latest recipients.

Goondiwindi Regional Councillor, David McMahon, said this funding will build the capacity of the groups to be better able to respond to the needs of their members and the community generally.

“These grants, for up to $35,000 with no contribution needed by the club, close every three months and I encourage community groups in the region that haven’t received funding from this group over the past two years to consider putting an application in.”

“The State Government Minister concerned said that these groups would be receiving priority.”

“The next round closes 30 November and the application process is done online by visiting www.olgr.qld.gov.au concluded Cr McMahon
