Cecilia AllenSound Telegraph

Not-for-profit organisations based in Baldivis or providing services to the Rivergums are being encouraged to apply for a Cedar Woods’ Neighbourhood Grant to assist in a wide range of projects.

Cedar Woods WA State manager Ben Rosser said up to $10,000 was available to support local groups.

“Not-for-profit groups in Baldivis are an important part of building a vibrant and healthy community and the Neighbourhood Grant Program aims to support and recognise these organisations,” he said.

Past recipient P&C president and community liaison officer at Baldivis Secondary College Tracy Gschwendtner said the grant helped to establish permanent shade shelters for students and the community at the school’s oval.

“The school oval is used by students and the wider community, including local sporting clubs,” she said.

“The shade shelters funded by Cedar Woods’ Neighbourhood Grants Program have benefited everyone.”

Cedar Woods has donated more than $415,000 nationally through the Neighbourhood Grants Program since its inception in 2009.

Applications open November 1 and are available at www.therivergums.com.au/news.
