Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington has presented a Local Hero grant to the Nanango State School P&C so they can continue to help families who may not be able to afford uniforms.
Mrs Frecklington presented the $250 cheque to P&C president Leonie Legge who applied for the grant on behalf of the school in the November 2018 Local Hero round.
“The Nanango SS P&C applied for the grant to help them support families with school uniforms and other items such as stationery, bags and shoes,” Mrs Frecklington said.
“The need is ongoing and I’m glad to have been able to support this service and the work being done by the Nanango SS P&C team.
“The next round of my Local Hero Grants is now open, with applications closing on March 31.
“The grants are up to $250 and I’m encouraging groups to get their applications in as soon as possible.”
