The Moss­man Men’s Shed will re­ceive fund­ing from the Turn­bull Gov­ern­ment to sup­port men’s health and wellbeing in the Far North. The Com­mu­nity Men’s Shed will ben­e­fit from $7500 to­wards the cost of a con­tainer and site works to store tim­ber and equip­ment. The grants are part of $400,000 in fund­ing which will be dis­trib­uted to 93 com­mu­nity Men’s Sheds across Aus­tralia. An­nounc­ing the grant this week, Le­ich­hardt MP War­ren Entsch said the Men’s Shed pro­gram was go­ing from strength to strength. “The growth in the Men’s Shed move­ment has been as­tro­nom­i­cal - a lot of our ma­jor cen­tres now have them and we’re also see­ing Sheds in indige­nous com­mu­ni­ties,” Mr Entsch said.
