Ellenbrook Advocate - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
