Member for Nanango, Deb Frecklington, has congratulated twenty local community groups who were successful in securing grants through the latest round (106) of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund.

Mrs Frecklington said the groups will share in more than $500,000 to bring some fantastic projects to reality.

“The Gambling Community Benefit Grants are such a good way for groups to upgrade facilities and buy new equipment,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“I congratulate the groups who have been successful in this latest round. 2020 was a difficult year for community groups with limited fundraising opportunities, so these grants will be a big help in ensuring they can continue with their planned projects,” she said.
