Nudgee Community Groups secure grants
Nudgee Meals on Wheels and North East Community Support Group have been successful in obtaining funds under the Caring for our Community Initiative, the Member for Nudgee said today.
Ms Linard said the Caring for our Community grants recognised the valuable contribution of local volunteer and community groups across the state.
“These organisations work tirelessly to support our local community,” she said.
“It’s important to shine a light on their generosity – often they are at the heart of their local communities.
“I’ve seen the great work carried out by volunteer and community groups across Nudgee and have recently visited both Nudgee Meals on Wheels and the North East Community Support Group to see the great work that they are doing in the local community.”
“I know how much they will appreciate the opportunity to upgrade or replace existing resources and equipment and purchase new equipment to support their services.”
Successful organisations will receive small grants of up to $5,000 or for larger projects, grants of up to $15,000.
The successful Nudgee organisations are:
Nudgee Meals on Wheels – $9707.00 for the purchase of a commercial stainless steel freezer.
North East Community Support Group Inc. – $3715.00 for the purchase of outdoor chairs and two gazebos.
