Central Queensland community groups benefit from Easternwell Community Grants

Community groups in Central Queensland have received more than $3,500 through the latest round of community grants from Easternwell, a subsidiary of Transfield Services.

Much needed funds are going to the Dingo Tennis Club, Blackwater State High School, Emerald Gymnastics & Trampoline Club and the Emerald Community Garden.

Jennifer Smith from Dingo Tennis Club said the grant has enabled the Dingo Tennis Club to run junior tennis coaching clinics, helping to lift the community’s spirit.

“Geographically it’s very hard for juniors to attend a coaching clinics because of distance and the availability of coaches in smaller communities.”

“We’ve successfully run two coaching clinics which has been very positive for our community. It’s been nice hearing parents saying ‘It’s been so long since I played, I should start playing again with the kids’.”

Since the launch of the grass roots initiative in 2011, Easternwell has provided more than $14,600 to 11 groups in the Central Queensland region.

Easternwell’s Executive General Manager, Tim Phelan, said the program was specifically developed to provide much needed support to local grass roots organisations who do so much within our communities.

“There are countless community groups, clubs and associations in our operating areas who provide important services to their communities.”

“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 community members who count on the vital support of these organisations in their day to day lives.”
