A DOZEN sports and com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions will share in $21,230 worth of spon­sor­ships and do­na­tions from the City of Wan­neroo.

Coun­cil­lors at their Septem­ber meet­ing ap­proved a $5000 do­na­tion to Twin Cities 89.7FM and asked the City ad­min­is­tra­tion to in­ves­ti­gate op­por­tu­ni­ties to es­tab­lish a spon­sor­ship agree­ment.

Pre­sen­ter Sue Myc wel­comed the de­ci­sion after giv­ing a dep­u­ta­tion on be­half of the vol­un­teer-run sta­tion.

Mrs Myc said the sta­tion pro­moted Wan­neroo events and reg­u­larly hosted talks by the Mayor and wanted a sim­i­lar ar­range­ment to the City of Joon­dalup’s $10,000 spon­sor­ship deal.

She said the sta­tion was “de­lighted” the City recog­nised the role that 89.7FM played in the com­mu­nity.

“Ra­dio con­tin­ues to pro­vide a plat­form for all com­mu­nity voices and pro­vides di­rect, fac­tual and ef­fec­tive in­for­ma­tion and en­ter­tain­ment,” she said.

The coun­cil ap­proved sev­eral other do­na­tion re­quests, in­clud­ing $2760 for Joon­dalup Com­mu­nity Men­tal Health Con­sumer Ad­vi­sory Group for World Men­tal Health Day on Oc­to­ber 10.
