Gaming fund boost to community

THREE community organisations in the region will share in more than $65,000 of funding from the latest round of Jupiters Casino Community Benefit funding.

Little Haven Palliative Care has been granted $32,921 to purchase a motor vehicle, Tin Can Bay’s disability support organisation, Sailability, was given $20,509 to build a shed and the Gympie branch of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Queensland will now be able to purchase a dog trailer with $12,259.

The Minister responsible for gaming regulation Peter Lawlor said the funds were a well-deserved boost for local organisations.

“The money will go towards equipment and services identified by these groups as a priority for their region,” he said.

“These groups go out of their way every day to make a difference within their local area, and these grants are just one way of acknowledging their tireless efforts.”

The Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund uses a percentage of state revenue raised from gaming activities to offer grants of up to $150,000 to assist community organisations in South-East Queensland.
