A great start to the year for Nudgee community groups

Seven not-for-profit community groups across the Nudgee electorate have received a head start in 2016 thanks to the Queensland Government’s latest round of Gambling Community Benefit Fund grants.

Member for Nudgee, Leanne Linard congratulated the seven community groups who, in round 86, will share in more than $177,000 in funding.

“I’m delighted to say that over the past year, the Queensland Government returned more than $53.3 million in gaming revenue to 2,392 community groups to do what they do best, which is support their local community,” Ms Linard said.

“Our not-for-profit organisations are the heart and soul of Nudgee – they give so much and the Gambling Community Benefit Fund is just one way we can help them continue their great work.”

Ms Linard said recipients in the Nudgee Electorate were:

  • North Star Football Association to refurbish clubhouse $35,000;
