Com­mu­nity do­na­tion re­cip­i­ents an­nounced

Chinchilla News - - NEWS -

EIGHT com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions or groups from across the West­ern Downs, Mara­noa and Ba­nana re­gions are shar­ing in more than $40,000 worth of fi­nan­cial or in-kind as­sis­tance through Ori­gin’s Com­mu­nity Spon­sor­ship and Do­na­tions Pro­gram.

Ori­gin gen­eral man­ager for the Condabri, Talinga and Orana As­set Alex Kennedy-Clark said it was great to restart the quar­terly pro­gram and “help cre­ate some good en­ergy in the com­mu­nity by throw­ing our sup­port be­hind lo­cal events like the Chin­chilla and Miles Christ­mas street par­ties, the Tara Show or next year’s melon fes­ti­val”.

“It’s also pleas­ing to be part of ac­tiv­i­ties like help­ing the Tara Swim­ming Club in­stall a new tim­ing sys­tem that’s go­ing to al­low them to host a dis­trict car­ni­val for the first time in 10 years or help­ing the In­june State School P&C put down new turf in the play area for younger kids.”

Fi­nan­cial or in-kind as­sis­tance is avail­able for com­mu­nity-based pro­grams and up­com­ing events that con­trib­ute to eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment, natural re­source stew­ard­ship, safety and well-be­ing, and re­gional growth and live­abil­ity.

Four quar­terly rounds will be held in 2019. Find out more or grab an ap­pli­ca­tion from or email com­mu­nity.spon­sor [email protected]­inen­
