Ellenbrook Men's Shed funding boost
THE Ellenbrook Men’s Shed has received $20,000 to improve facilities.
The funding, which was an election commitment by Labor MP Jessica Shaw, was presented on Friday as part of their program to boost local projects and employment.
The funding will provide new equipment, extra work space, new security and safety measures, and help grow the membership base for the shed.
Ms Shaw said the funding would ensure the Ellenbrook Men’s Shed could continue to grow and thrive.
“This group allows men to work on meaningful projects in the company of other likeminded men,” he said.
“Their projects make a big difference to our local community - they fix playgrounds, sporting and community equipment.
“I’m so pleased to have the opportunity through this grant to support their great work.”
Jessica Shaw hands the cheque to Men’s Shed members.
