Logan Village Men’s Shed have received more than $13,000 in funding during National Volunteers Week this month.
The Men’s Shed received the funding from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund along with 602 other groups across the state.
Jimboomba Dog Training Club also received more than $20, 000 through the scheme to upgrade their lighting.
State Member for Logan Linus Power said the community would be lost without the work and compassion of not-for-profit community and sporting groups across Logan.
“Volunteers continue to give their time, energy and dedication to their organisations and to Logan and our community is a better place because of their commitment,” he said.
“I’m so pleased to be able to announce the recipients of the GCBF Round 87 during National Volunteers Week.
“Warren and the men at Logan Village are true craftsman, and I’m pleased that they have been able to secure funding to expand their facilities.
“They have an active network which continues to grow, and I know this funding will be money well spent.”
The Gambling Community Benefit Fund is the single state-wide government funding program which distributes one-off grants of up to $35,000 (inclusive of GST) from gambling taxes to not-for-profit community groups around Queensland on a quarterly basis.
“Not-for-profit community groups support some of the hardest working people in our state,” Mr Power said.
“The GCBF program is a great way to ensure these groups receive funding so they can continue their outstanding community work.”
The next round of funding closes midnight on May 31.
