Member for Currumbin Jann Stuckey MP has congratulated eleven local community groups who will share in more than $275,000 thanks to the Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF).

 

The one-off grants, provided with revenue from gaming taxes, allow not-for-profit organisations to seek funding to purchase new equipment, improve facilities and host community events.

 

Ms Stuckey said she regularly supports local groups in their applications, and was thrilled to see such a large number successful in the latest round.

 

“The funds from this grants program benefit so many of our local residents, and it’s fantastic to see so many Currumbin not-for-profit organisations continuing to apply,” Ms Stuckey said.

 

“From the purchase of landscaping supplies to the construction of new sporting facilities, our local groups will be able to better serve their members by improving their venues and equipment.

 

“I look forward to visiting these groups in the near future to see the grant funding in action.”

 

The following local organisations have been successful in the latest round:

  • Bilinga Surf Life Saving Club

  • Coolangatta Bowls and Recreation Club

  • Currumbin District Horse Club

  • Currumbin Valley State School

  • Dragons Abreast

  • Gecko Environmental Council

  • Kirra Surf Life Saving Club

  • Palm Beach Currumbin Swimming Club
