Men’s Shed funds
The Mooroopna Men’s Shed will receive $2537 to buy new computers, associated software, a wi-fi connection and new blinds as part of a Federal Government grant.
The Federal Government provided Australian Men’s Shed Association with $5.1 million through 2018-19 to support the national network of Men’s Sheds.
‘‘The Mooroopna Men’s Shed is an important part of the Mooroopna community and it offers the opportunity for men, particularly as they get older, to connect with each other and socialise,’’ Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum said.
‘‘Which is a good way to help prevent isolation and other health conditions.’’
Men’s Sheds provide a sense of community, a safe and friendly environment where men can work on meaningful projects at their own pace, in their own time and in the company of their mates.
