Easternwell gets behind local communities

Easternwell, Australia’s leading drilling and well servicing company and Transfield Services subsidiary, has opened up its latest round of Easternwell Community Grants (ECG) and is encouraging groups, clubs, schools and associations to apply for funding up to $2,000.

Established in 2011, the ECG program provides financial and social assistance in regions where Easternwell has key operations including the Pilbara, Surat Basin, Central Queensland and Toowoomba.

Designed to support groups and associations that are making a difference in their community, Easternwell has delivered a helping hand to more than 100 organisations said Executive General Manager, Tim Phelan.

“Last year our the grass-roots program provided funding for all sorts of initiatives including, purchasing CPR training apparatuses, tools and equipment for various Mens Sheds and resources for indigenous groups, as well as headstones for a local heritage association.

“We’re passionate about getting behind our local communities and the grants program is just one of the ways we’re creating a lasting benefit for the wider community.”

Since establishing the ECG program, Easternwell has provided more than $171,000 to 102 organisations including Tom Price Community Garden, QCWA Wallumbilla branch, Central Highlands Science Centre and the Toowoomba Lapidary Club.

Easternwell is encouraging people who are involved with community groups to apply, particularly if they have a genuine need for additional resources which may ensure the sustainability of either the organisation or a specific program.

Applications for the Easternwell Community Grants Program are assessed twice a year and must be received before 27 March 2015. For more information about Easternwell’s Community GrantsProgram visit www.easternwell.com.au/communitygrants.com.au
