Funds have been allocated to a diverse range of community projects including support for the Women’s Shelter, programs for young people at risk, aged and those with chronic illnesses.

This funding is administered by local representatives who have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of our local social priorities and provide funding accordingly stated J Lynch, NSW Council of Social Service representative.

“Our Clubs will continue our commitment to the community by providing funding that is spread as far as possible across a wide variety of local projects, whilst providing the greatest tangible benefit to the needs of our area assured the club representatives from the Club Grants Local committee” said Damian Clements, Forster Bowling Club committee representative.
