Grant for the Shed

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - TRANSFORMING MIDLAND -

KALA­MUNDA Men’s Shed is $879 bet­ter off af­ter se­cur­ing a grant through the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s na­tional shed de­vel­op­ment pro­gram.

Hasluck MHR Ken Wy­att said shed net­works of­fered men a lo­cal so­cial group with many health ben­e­fits.

“Although men­tal ill­ness af­fects both men and women, men are less likely to seek help or talk about their feel­ings,” he said.

“Like sim­i­lar sheds across Aus­tralia, the Kala­munda shed of­fers great ben­e­fits to any lo­cal men who need a bit of space and some friendly, easy-go­ing com­pany.”

Kala­munda Men’s Shed will use the grant to in­stall a mo­torised pro­jec­tion screen and other equip­ment.
