Pilbara News - - Pilbara News -

Health, sport and youth in Onslow have all received a boost through Chevron Aus­tralia’s lat­est round of com­mu­nity spirit fund grants.

The fund is a small grants pro­gram help­ing to build and sup­port thriv­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties.

Re­cip­i­ents of the grants in­cluded the Onslow Hospi­tal, St John Am­bu­lance sub cen­tre and the lo­cal school’s par­ents and cit­i­zens as­so­ci­a­tion.

Onslow Early Years Group has also received $5000 to put to­wards its new toy li­brary.

An­other $5000 will go to the Onslow Play­group to help it re­lo­cate.

Chevron Aus­tralia com­mu­nity li­ai­son of­fi­cer Shawn Hei­drich said the grants sup­ported ini­tia­tives which made Onslow a bet­ter place to live and work.

“In 2016, the grants helped meet a di­verse range of com­mu­nity needs, from the ex­pan­sion of the Onslow Sports Club's out­door area to im­proved train­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties for emer­gency ser­vices provider St John Am­bu­lance,” he said.

Sev­eral other sports groups also ben­e­fited from the com­mu­nity spirit fund grants, in­clud­ing the mo­tocross and en­duro club and the rodeo as­so­ci­a­tion.
