12th Round of Local Hero Grants brings early Christmas cheer

10th December 2020

Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington, has announced the successful recipients of the 12th Round of her Local Hero Grants, helping to bring some early Christmas cheer across the Nanango Electorate.

Mrs Frecklington said the applications from local groups and individuals are always high quality and she was proud to nominate the following groups as her ‘local heroes’:

  • Kumbia Neighbourhood Watch
  • Taabinga State School P&C
  • Mr James Watt (Touch Football referee)
  • Yarraman Bowls Club
  • Esk Christmas Tree (Brisbane Valley Apex)

“My Local Hero Grants are available for community groups from the Nanango Electorate. These are small but meaningful $250 grants that provide an opportunity to show my support, thanks and appreciation for all our hardworking volunteer groups who make such a difference for our community,” Deb said.

“They also encourage people who are attending sporting or other events and need assistance to make it possible,” she said.

The closing date for Round Thirteen is 31 March 2021. If you would like to apply, please go to or contact the Electorate office on 4190 7100 for the guidelines.
