Heritage Nanango Community Fund (HNCF) held its annual grants night on Thursday to congratulate the recipients of its support over the past 12 to 18 months.
A total of 21 not-for-profit groups received help from the fund, which distributes a share of the profits from the local Heritage Bank Community Branch in Nanango.
HNCF director Jane Hodgkinson compered the evening, held at the Nanango QCWA rooms in Fitzroy Street.
The room was packed with volunteers from the various groups.
“We are all united by a shared commitment to build a stronger and more vibrant community,” Jane said.
“Without your hard work, and commitment to our community, it would not be the town that it is. And you’re making it a better place to live.
“So thank you very much for the dedication that you have put into making our community what it is.”
Heritage Bank Community Branch manager Lochlan Ezzy said the grants would not be possible without the support of branch customers.
