$20k to Open New Doors for CQ Lifesavers
Surf Lifesavers in Emu Park will benefit from improvements to their facilities thanks to Michelle Landry and the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.
Capricornia MP, Michelle Landry, said she was thrilled to be able to deliver for the club that not only serves as a great home for sporting pursuit but also keeps bathers safe on the popular Keppel Bay shoreline.
“The work and fun Emu Park Surf Lifesavers do here is immensely
important for Central Queenslanders, whether they are locals here in Emu Park, or have travelled from the bush
for a holiday.
“The term ‘Lifesavers’ is not used lightly as scores of people walking around today have a
Surf Lifesaver to thank for this.
“I recently had the honour of awarding local Lifesaver, Max Tapp, with his ‘Rescue of the Month’ award at Parliament House, these awards highlighted the enormous feats achieved by our surf lifesavers across the country and I am proud to be able to help the Emu Park club continue to improve their facilities with this grant.”Ms Landry said
“Emu Park Surf Lifesaving will receive $20,000 grant to upgrade their storage facilities, making them safer and better prepared for future upgrades.
“This $20,000 grant is thanks to the Stronger Communities Programme, a terrific federal government initiative designed to help small community groups, like surf lifesaving clubs, implement the projects they need to continue to improve and serve the community,” Ms Landry said.
“I am proud to be part of a Coalition Government putting local communities first.”
