Easternwell supports Noonga community

Noogna Community Association Inc. has been announced as one of the groups in regional Queensland to receive grant funding from Easternwell, one of Australia’s leading drilling and well servicing company and subsidiary of Transfield Services, in recognition of its valued contribution to the region.

The not-for-profit organisation received $2,000 through the latest rounds of Easternwell’s community grants program to host a free first aide course and CPR training day for the Noonga community.

Noonga Community Association’s Secretary, Polly Leahy, said “Noonga is an isolated community 22 kilometres north of Jackson. The training day will ensure the community itself is prepared for any accidents or injuries that may occur and that people are educated on how to treat patients while they wait for medical support.”

Since the launch of the grass-roots initiative in 2011, Easternwell has provided over $62,000 to more than 38 groups in the Surat Basin.

Easternwell’s Chief Operating Officer, Tim Phelan, said “the grants program was designed to shine a light on the groups and associations that are making a difference in their community, but are in need of a helping hand.

“Easternwell is passionate about supporting the regions where we conduct business and our grants program is one of the ways we are creating lasting benefits for these communities.

“Over the years we have provide grant funding to more than 110 groups throughout Australia which has enabled them to grow their services to benefit the wider community.”

Applications for the Easternwell Community Grants Program are assessed twice a year and must be received before 14 September 2014. Eligible groups may apply for funding up to $2,000.
