Recently community groups in North Lakes and Deception Bay won funding totalling more than $95,000 from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund’s latest round of grants.
The winning organisations were the North Lakes Mustang’s Soccer Club, Riding for the Disabled Association – Deception Bay and North Lakes State College P&C.
The Mustangs will use their funding to upgrade the lighting at their facility. Riding for the Disabled in Deception Bay will install and arena and day yard fencing. North Lakes State College P&C will use the grant to upgrade the deck and the roof of the toilet block.
I was thrilled to be able to call up each of these groups to let them know about their successful grant applications and I look forward to being able to make this call to many other community groups in the future.
