Bulahdelah IGA, owned by Darshan Singh, has contributed a total of $1300.00 to their community thanks to residents shopping locally.
Last Tuesday, store manager, Anita Pinkerton presented cheques from the 2014 Community Chest to Bernadette Newton from the Bulahdelah Show Society, Nicky Hammerl and Ezra Hammerl from Scouts and Kevin Carter from the Historical Society.
Mrs Pinkerton told Myall Coast News that a percentage of the money spent on IGA branded items was given back to the community and each year a different selection of groups was chosen to receive the funding.
Funds given to the Bulahdelah Show Society will be used for sponsorship and improvements to the grounds and buildings.
Bulahdelah Scouts welcomed the funding and Nicky Hammerl advised that the money would be spent on camping equipment.
Kevin Carter from the Historical Society said that they would spend the money on maintenance of the Court House Museum and surrounding gardens.
Community groups that are to receive the 2015 funds are yet to be chosen.
