Community organisations including sporting groups, community resource centres and those that offer activities for young families will share over $30,000 of funding awarded by the Shire of Ashburton this week.

The Shire’s Community Support Grants are provided as in-kind or financial assistance to enable community groups to deliver quality programs, community events and services.

Earlier this month, Council approved Community Support Grants for 14 community organisations across the Shire.

Shire President Kerry White congratulated the recipients and recognised the importance of community support.

“This funding allows clubs to host or travel to regional and state sporting events or championships, purchase new equipment, and partake in professional sports or community development such as clinics, courses and seminars,” she said.

“The funding can also be used to host community events in addition to other purposes based on broad community benefit.

“Community Support Grants allow the groups in all towns to continue offering their services to the people of Ashburton.”
