“We’re indebted to our volunteers, whose generosity and dedication keep our communities together and encapsulate the spirit of Christmas,” Dr Gillespie said.

“These grants are to recognise and thank our Rural Fire Service brigades and Surf Life Saving Clubs, community sporting bodies, P&C associations, rotary and lions clubs, community arts and festival committees and local show societies.

“It’s a special Christmas for many of us who have been separated from family and friends in recent months.
“I hope we all have a chance to relax with those we love and enjoy the blessings of the festive season.”
