$30,500 awarded by Manor Lakes Community Fund
20 September 2019
Twenty-three not-for-profit groups operating in the Wyndham area have shared in $30,500 of financial grants distributed through the 2019 Manor Lakes Community Fund. Successful applicants received their grants at the presentation night held at the Manor Lakes Sales Office, with over sixty people in attendance.
The annual grant program, an initiative of Manor Lakes estate project manager Dennis Family Corporation, will assist with a host of community initiatives.
“We take pride in investing ourselves into the communities we create. Initiatives such as the Community Funds ensure that we continue to actively support a wide range of not-for-profit organisations in the locations where our company operates,” said Dennis Family Group Managing Director, Grant Dennis, who hosted the event.
Since its inception in 2003, the Manor Lakes Community Fund has distributed more than $300,000 to local community groups in the Wyndham area.
The 1st Iramoo Scout Group (pictured) which received funds of $1500, intend to put their grant toward a well needed facelift to the façade of the Scout Hall. They hope to engage a local artist to assist and to keep the design in line with the local surroundings.
