Murrindindi Shire Council has named a number of great community groups as recipients of assistance through the September round of its Grants and Contributions Program.
Life Saving Victoria received $5000, under the Community Projects and Events stream of Council’s Program, to run an Open Water Safety Education program for five primary schools around the Shire.
The Triangle Arts Group Inc. received $2000 in sponsorship to help fund the prizes for winning entries in the 2019 Marysville Arts Show. Foggy Mountain Inc. received $4250 to support the ‘Ten Years On – Foggy Mountain Primary School’ project’s launch concert and a $750 fee waiver for the use of the Kinglake Community Centre.
Council was also pleased to support the Rotary Club of Kinglake Ranges with a $256 venue hire fee reduction to run a Movie Trivia Night to raise funds for mental health services.
Mayor Sandice McAulay said Council’s Grants and Contributions Program offers community groups, not-for-profit organisations and businesses the opportunity to seek funding to support a range of activities and initiatives that have a wider community benefit.
“It was great to see yet another collection of fantastic projects in this round of the Grants and Contributions Program. I look forward to seeing the impact these initiatives will have on broader community wellbeing, visitation to the area and economic development in Murrindindi Shire.Advertisement
