Funds on offer for Bundy groups

GRANTS of up to $5000 are on offer for community, sporting and recreational organisations in the Bundaberg region.

The organisations are being encouraged to apply for the funding under Bundaberg Regional Council's Community Grants Program.

The program will enable the groups to upgrade, enhance and improve their facilities and the range of activities which they offer without placing extra burden on club finances.

Last financial year, 38 groups across the region were granted funds to support ventures such as canteen upgrades, portable shade, audiovisual equipment and sheds.

Festivals and community activities, including the successful Arts in Winter, held at Woodgate, also benefited from the program, while a district Lions Club was able to continue its community service after it received funding for a portable kitchen.

The council's social and recreation portfolio spokeswoman Lynne Forgan recommended all community groups and organisations apply for funding through the grants program.

“Our volunteer groups work hard to achieve their projects, and community grants can help them to enhance and reach their final goals,” she said.

Applications are now open and close on Friday, November 12.

Community groups can access the council's community grant application kit on the council's website at www.bundaberg.qld.gov.au.

For more information, or to make an appointment with the council's sports and recreation officer, telephone 1300 883 699.
