Success! Gambling Community Benefit Fund Grant
On Friday the 23rd of September the club received a bank transfer from the QLD Government Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) for $24,587.50 meaning that we were successful in our round 89 application earlier this year (April/May)!
The funding will go towards race equipment (e.g. timing mats, tent and course marking stuff) and various trail care tools such as a brush cutter, soil compactor, drill and extra hand tools.
This will likely take us a couple of months to organise, procure and document but we’re keen to put them to use as quickly as possible.
Thanks goes to the QLD Government: Department Justice and Attorney General, Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation and to club secretary, Michael, who wrote and submitted the grant application on behalf of the club (and begrudgingly left out the fat bikes for all members idea). Also thanks to our membership who allow this club to exist and apply for these grants to do the things we all want to do.
The initiatives for which we are applying for grants are born from the feedback by our members so please please please make sure you complete the annual membership survey to ensure we’re going for the things that you want.
Fingers crossed that we have continued success with the three other grants we have submitted applications.
