Woodford and Wamuran community groups are winners in the latest Gambling Community Benefit Fund grants
Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell has welcomed the recent announcement that almost $300,000 in funding has been awarded to eleven worthy community groups in the Glass House electorate through Round 89 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.
Mr Powell has reported that three clubs from Woodford and Wamuran have shared in just over $75,000 between them for upgrades and beautification projects.
“We know our community groups face a constant struggle to access funds to keep them viable so these sorts of funding injections really go a long way to helping them survive,” Mr Powell said.
The Woodford and District Bowls Club will be upgrading their toilet facilities and clubhouse.
The Wamuran Netball Club (Warriors) will be able to upgrade their courts. The funding has been welcomed by the committees and players who have worked hard to achieve these outcomes.
The Woodford Lions Club received over $30,000 to go towards their brilliant community art project on the water tower. “I've had a sneak peek at the designs and they are simply stunning!”, Mr Powell exclaimed.
“All of these community groups are run by volunteers and the application process is not an easy one to navigate so I congratulate those who have put in the effort and been successful this time around,” Mr Powell concluded.
