Two more South Burnett community groups have received a boost from the Federal Government’s Volunteer Grants scheme.

The Goomeri Pumpkin Festival organising committee will receive $4900 to fit out and equip an office for volunteers.

Graham House Community Centre at Murgon will receive $5000 to provide ongoing training for volunteers.

The grants were announced on Tuesday by Member for Wide Bay Llew O’Brien.

“Wide Bay simply would not be the same without volunteers, who are the lifeblood of our communities and deliver important services, support and assistance,” Mr O’Brien said.

“The energy, expertise and time our volunteers give represents what Australian communities are all about – offering a helping hand.”
