Seniors concert tickets now available
Free tickets are now available for this year’s Seniors Concert at Port Panthers. Each year I host the concert in conjunction with Hastings Combined Seniors.
The concert, which features some wonderful local entertainers, is on Thursday, February 21. Doors open at 9am, so you will have plenty of time to get your free morning tea and find a seat before the concert starts at 9.45am.
The state government has provided $7000 to will help to stage the free concert at Panthers. If you need any more information, please call my office on 6584 0977.
Life-saving grants still open for local sports clubs
Half a million dollars is available to local sports clubs as part of the NSW government’s Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program.
This is Round 3 of the four-year $4 million program, recognising the important role sport plays in our community. The program helps sports organisations buy Automated External Defibrillators (AED), which can be used to respond to cardiac emergencies.
It’s critical that sport and recreation facilities are equipped with this life-saving equipment, and I urge local sports organisations to apply for funding in the current round as soon as possible for the best chance of securing a grant. Eligible sports clubs and organisations can receive between $1250 and $1900 in funds towards the cost of a defibrillator.
Since the start of the program in 2017, the NSW government has committed to provide $985,000 to sport and recreation facilities to assist with the purchase of 780 defibrillators.
Applications close May 6, 2019. Details about applications and eligibility at: sport.nsw.gov.au/clubs/grants/defibrillator
