GOOD TIDINGS FOR TAMWORTH WITH CHRISSY CASH SPLASH
Four community groups in Tamworth will share $76,878 in State Government funding under the Community Building Partnership program Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson announced today.
Mr Anderson said the injection of funds for smaller community groups can make a massive difference and can help deliver projects that they otherwise may struggle to get done.
“Community organisations ensure that Tamworth can run as well as it does which is why we support them with small one off grants,” Mr Anderson said.
The successful organisations are:
Oxley Dog Training Club - $16,822 to purchase and install artificial turf to the indoor arena
Liberty Church - $8,200 towards their new Liberty Foodcare
Tamworth City Swimming Club - $33,000 for an electronic timing system for use in competitions
Dungowan and District Tennis Club - $18,856 to upgrade the facilities
Mr Anderson said the organisations were four out of 18 in the Tamworth electorate that shared in a total of $300,000.
“Each year we encourage community groups to get their applications in because it’s a great opportunity to see more funding come into our region.
“While not every project can get funding I encourage groups to get their applications in so that they have the best chance at receiving a grant.
“This grassroots funding will directly benefit our community and will deliver vital new infrastructure and help pay for much-needed improvements.”
