EMERGING NEEDS FUNDED THROUGH GRANT OPPORTUNITY

ARTS, CULTURE AND FESTIVALS SPONSORSHIP AVAILABLE

Do you belong to a community organisation that has identified an emerging need throughout the Latrobe Municipality in the fields of the environment, health and community welfare; and sport and recreation?

Perhaps you are considering establishing a new arts or cultural event or festival for ongoing staging in the Latrobe Municipality.

Did you know that Latrobe Council offers grants annually to support the development and presentation of such initiatives?

Currently open for application, details of the Community Development Grants are available from Latrobe Council’s website at www.latrobe.tas.gov.au.

The Latrobe Baptist Church Men’s Shed, who engage with over 200 people, mainly retirees, weekly both at the shed and in the neighbouring hall and church facilities received funding to purchase a defibrillator.

“The funding offset the full cost of purchasing the defibrillator, wall mounted cabinet and AED sign along with training in the use of the defibrillator by approximately 15 persons,” said coordinator, Pastor Ralph Terry.

The Latrobe Croquet Club also benefited from the Emerging Needs Grants.

“We initially established a three lawn venue in Latrobe, utilising the funding to source equipment to play croquet.

The take up of croquet has be phenomenal and we are now looking to expand to another lawn and are hosting croquet as part of the Australian Masters Games this October,” said Mr Chris West, Latrobe Croquet Club President.

The Port Sorell Garden Club were successful in securing sponsorship that resulted in eight not-for-profit, locally based organisations collaborating to establish the Port Sorell Spring Fair.

Mrs Glen Miles stated that the Port Sorell Spring Fair “generated awareness of the participant organisations, raised funds for them through the stalls that they operated, created a buzz around the event, increased membership and resulted in economic returns.”
