The latest round of Tarong Community Partnership Fund grants will help four local not-for-profit associations, including a Blackbutt group which had its clubhouse trashed by vandals in March.
The Tarong fund is dedicated to helping projects that build social connectedness, lead to increased employment, improve access to critical services, enhance educational opportunities, or build economic capacity, preparedness and resilience in the community surrounding the Tarong power stations and Meandu Mine.
The four successful applicants in the latest round were:
- Murgon Show Society – To buy two portable bathrooms, two portable accessible bathrooms and wheelchair seating.
- Kingaroy Junior Cricket Association – To fence three sides of the River Road Park grounds in Kingaroy and install two access gates.
- Benarkin State School – To build a large storage shed to house sporting equipment used by both students and the broader community.
- Timbertown Sporting and Community Hub – To upgrade the clubhouse and kitchen facilities after recent vandalism extensively damaged the clubhouse and irreplaceable sporting memorabilia was destroyed. The group and the Blackbutt community have worked hard since then to repair the damage.
