This week, nine community groups were named as recipients of 2022 Shire of Denmark Community Grants after Council approved funding to a combined value of $25,000 at the November Ordinary Council Meeting.

The annual Community Grants program is designed to provide financial assistance to local not-for-profit groups and organisations to help them deliver projects which will benefit the Denmark community.

Successful applicants this year included Chamber of Blessings/Denmark Arts Inc, Denmark Community Rowing Association, Denmark FM/Denmark Community Resource Centre, Denmark Gymnastics, Denmark Machinery Restoration Group Inc, Denmark Mountain Bike Club Inc, Green Skills Inc, Nornalup Residents and Ratepayers Association and Riding for the Disabled Association Denmark Centre Inc.

Applications were assessed by demonstrated need and alignment with both the Shire of Denmark Strategic Community Plan and Shire of Denmark Sustainability Strategy.

Denmark Shire President Ceinwen Gearon said Council was pleased to once again be in a position to offer assistance to so many community groups which make projects happen in Denmark for the benefit of all.

“The Community Grants program enables us to offer assistance to a wide range of community groups,” Cr Gearon said.

“On behalf of the entire organisation, I offer my congratulations to the successful applicants and look forward to seeing their projects come to life with this funding assistance.”
