Lismore Friendship Festival is a celebration of Italian culture in our community. It is an annual event held in Spinks Park.
Many people volunteer their time to ensure this event can run smoothly. The Festival needs to train these volunteers in first aid and provide them with certain qualifications.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced funding to assist covering the costs of this training.
“I am very pleased to support Lismore Friendship Festival with $3,210 to cover the cost of the training,” Mr Hogan said.
“This festival features a variety Italian music, food, culture and art.”
“It is disappointing it has been postponed for this year, but I know it will come back better in 2021.”
“Volunteers are central to so many local organisations and provide important services in our community.”
“It is important to support the efforts of these organisations and the individuals that allow them to function.”
