NAB does its part for Emerald

THE National Australia Bank did its part in assisting community groups around Central Queensland last month, as it pledged $70,000 to 10 flood-affected groups.

Grants were allocated to community groups that manage projects and activities that have a clear benefit to the local community and include such things as replacing essential community equipment, small infrastructure projects, programs which help rebuild

community spirit and projects that address the disadvantaged.

The recipients for the Central Highlands area were the Emerald Junior Rugby League Club, which received $20,000 to repair playing surfaces and club amenities and the Emerald Rams Rugby Union Club, which also received $20,000 to replace the kitchenette and whitegoods and purchase a new water heating system and training equipment such as tackle pads and goal post pads.
