Member for Barker, Tony Pasin has secured $10,000 for the the White Park Community Clubrooms thanks to the Coalition Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.

The funding will contribute to a kitchen upgrade for the organisation.

“I congratulate the University of the Third Age – Murraylands, on this successful funding application. It’s an extremely worthy cause and I’m so pleased to be supporting it,” Mr Pasin said.

The White Park Community Clubrooms has recently been extended to provide additional meeting space for community groups.

The kitchen was in need of replacement to meet food preparation standards. Thanks to the Federal Government Grant, the now completed project has removed the old kitchen and installed a new kitchen, including a double sink and hand basin, new storage cupboards, an island bench/server and an oven with range hood.

The White Park Community Clubrooms extension, was an initiative of the Lions Club of Murray Bridge, in partnership with the University of the Third Age (U3A)– Murraylands and supported by the Rural City of Murray Bridge.

The Stronger Communities Program provides not for profit organisations access to funds for small capital projects aimed at strengthening communities by improving community facilities.

“This is a great example of community organisations run by volunteers working together to achieve great community outcomes. I’m so pleased that Federal Government funding can also support this worthwhile community endeavour,” said Mr Pasin.
