The Gilgandra CWA rooms are usually fully booked with events to help build community and resilience, such as the Windmill Yarners Club, members’ meetings and drought relief activities.
Gilgandra CWA Treasurer Julie Sawley and President Helen Oates say the group is highly appreciative of the difference Inland Rail’s grant has made.
“We would not have been able to purchase these chairs without this grant,” Julie said.
President Oates adds: “Inland Rail has been very helpful and has allowed us to upgrade our facilities. That is something that we would not have been able to do for quite some time.
“These grants provide a great opportunity to bring some stability back into our groups that has been impeded by the loss of income to rural areas because of the drought and then COVID-19,” she said.
Applications for the next Community Sponsorships and Donations round close on 31 October 2020 with funding of between $1,000 and $4,000 per project available.
