Grant to support voluntary group in Pearce
Posted on Monday, 13 June 2005
The work of a voluntary group in the electorate of Pearce has received a significant boost of $1800, as one of the grants recently announced as part of the Australian Government’s $750,000 Grants to Voluntary Environment and Heritage Organisations (GVEHO) program.
Member for Pearce Judi Moylan welcomed the $1800 grant for the Lower Moore River Working Group Inc.
Ms Moylan said the money would be put to good use to protect the environment locally.
“I am always impressed by the number of volunteers in the communities across the Pearce electorate.
“This program (GVEHO) recognises the important role that voluntary organisations play in protecting our land, plants, animals and historic places,” Ms Moylan said.
“We are lucky in Australia to have so many people dedicated to caring for the Australian landscape and living history, often on their own time and with few resources.
“For those groups who may have missed out on funding this year, and for those who wish to submit an application I would encourage them do so.”
