Calvary Lighthhouse at Loganholme has received a $10,000 grant through Round 1 of the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.
Federal Member for Forde, Bert van Manen MP said he was delighted to be able to support Debbie and Ron Hill, who do tremendous work in the local community.
“Debbie and Ron will use the grant for the Lighthouse Care Kitchen project,” Mr van Manen said.
“They are working on opening a café at their Loganholme site to provide more support and service to those in need.”
Mr van Manen said the Australian Government is providing $45 million over two years through the Stronger Communities Programme to fund small capital projects in local communities.
“This programme will deliver $150,000 per year for two years to my electorate of Forde,” Mr van Manen said.
“Projects awarded funding must deliver social benefits to the community and contribute to our community’s long term vibrancy and viability.”
