Glen Elmes Welcomes News of Successful Grants Applications for Noosa

Member for Noosa, Glen Elmes MP is pleased to announce that several community groups in the Noosa electorate have been successful in receiving grants of more than $41,000 from their recent applications to the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Successful organisations in Round No 87 include :

  • Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club $5,909.09
  • Noosa Bridge Club Inc $17,500.00
  • Noosaville State School $9,090.90
  • Zonta Club of Noosa $8,884.00

“Community and volunteer organisations are the backbone of places such as Noosa so it’s important that they get help to assist with successful programs and activities. I understand the importance of these groups and the difference their organisations can make in their communities,” Mr Elmes said.

“Whether it is for the purchase of much-needed equipment or infrastructure renovations, these grants provide a fantastic opportunity to improve local community facilities and upgrade resources. It is particularly pleasing when the Noosa area and its residents benefit directly from the work of a local group who, with the assistance of financial support, are then able to continue their valuable efforts,” Mr Elmes said
