Powell Media Release – Andrew announces Local Heroes Grants (20 January 2016)

The start of a new year is always a busy time for sporting associations and community groups as they begin to set out their goals for the year and, in the case of sporting groups, prepare themselves for the onslaught of new members ready to sign on to participate in a year of sporting activities.

To assist Glass House community groups with some of their costs, local MP Andrew Powell, is pleased to announce his 2016 Local Heroes Grants.

“As the local Member I have the opportunity to use my Parliamentary allowance to assist community groups with a range of activities, including fundraisers, raffle prizes and donations.

“These grants will take my assistance one step further and allow groups to nominate for a donation of $250. And I will be offering four grants, six times a year – every second month.

“Glass House also has a growing number of people in our community who are involved in individual sporting competitions or volunteer projects that are welcome to apply to this two-monthly grant program.

“I’ll be keeping the application process really simple – I know how busy you are and don’t want to waste your time unnecessarily. Just go to my website and click on the Local Heroes Grant icon to get your nomination in the mix.”
