Fresh round of grants on the table from Stanmore

Fresh round of grants on the table from Stanmore

Round one for 2021 of the Stanmore Coal Isaac Plains Community Grant Program opened this month.

The program offers grants of up to $5000 for initiatives that highlight community health and wellbeing, support young people in the region, provide opportunities for Indigenous engagement and support the environment.

Gymnastics Moranbah was one of 17 local community organisations to receive funding as part of round two grants in 2020. The grant was used to introduce Fitter for Life classes for seniors over 50 years of age.

Gymnastics Moranbah Club manager Gabby Halverson said the classes were important to help seniors stay strong and mobile, and are an opportunity for social interaction.

Stanmore Coal general manager operations Leandro Pires said the organisation was committed to continuing its support for local community programs.

“2020 has been a tough year for many people and organisations in our community. We are committed to supporting local initiatives and programs and hope that these grants can help make a real difference,” he said.

“Stanmore is proud to contribute to organisations across the Central Queensland region both through the Isaac Plains Community Grant Program and through key partnerships with community groups.

“We look forward to receiving another round of strong applications and giving local schools, clubs and groups a new year gift to continue the activities that mean so much to their communities.”

Online applications for round one 2021 community grants close on January 31. More at www.stanmorecoal.com.au/community-area.
