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.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced funding for two groups to allow them to continue and grow their operations.
“I am very pleased to support The Woolgoolga Seniors’ Centre and Woolgoolga Regional Community Gardens Association,” Mr Hogan said.
“Both organisations support many people in our community and are very deserving of this funding.”
“Woopi Gardens was established over ten years ago and was the first community garden in Woolgoolga.”
“$4,700 will be provided to construct a large outdoor covered gathering place.”
“This will create a space for the whole community to enjoy, especially the groups that use the gardens for educational activities.”
“The Woolgoolga Seniors’ Centre is a great community facility in our community. They hold functions, activities and exercise classes.”
“$5,000 has been provided to through the Be Connected program.”
“This will allow the Centre to run a free ‘Health My Way’ program that teaches digital health and literacy.”
