Groups score much-needed cash

COMMUNITY groups combining to improve the fortunes of a foundation town have been boosted by a much needed cash splash.

Sundale Community Foundation handed out its third round of community grants, delivering fund injections to 13 charities from Nambour and surrounding areas.

Mayor Mark Jamieson joined foundation chairwoman Caroline Hutchinson to present the grants at Nambour RSL on Tuesday.

Among the winners were the Nambour Community Centre Inc, which secured $6200 for a lease car to transport clients, while PCYC Sunshine Coast also received $7470 towards its Braking the Cycle project.

St Vincent de Paul was handed $5000 from Ken Mills Toyota to provide school shoes and uniforms to children in need.

Nambour Meals on Wheels also received $9867, including $5000 from Sundale Ltd, for food safety improvements.

In total $50,592.10 was handed out to the organisations, who were making a difference to lives of those in need in Nambour and surrounding suburbs.

Cr Jamieson praised the work of the various groups and urged others to get involved in the next round of the grants.

He said the organisations were undertaking important work and changing lives.
