Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan recently announced $3,240 to help the group with training costs.
“This is an important group in our community run by hardworking mothers,” Mr Hogan said.
“I am pleased to have secured funding to help cover training and fuel costs to enable the volunteers to travel around our region.”
