MOSSMAN MEN’S SHED
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.
