Grants a boon to groups in town
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.
