2011 SENIOR WEEK GRANTS NOW OPEN

17 August 2010

Thomas George, Nationals’ Member for Lismore welcomed the Government’s announcement of $175 000 being made available to help celebrate 2011 NSW Seniors’ Week in March.

Mr George encouraged any volunteer, local government or community group in the electorate to apply for the grants that support the development and organisation of local 2011 NSW Senior Week activities.

“The NSW Senior Week is a great success throughout the electorate with numerous activities held in many locations.

“A week each year is dedicated to celebrate the valuable contribution seniors make to our community and this funding enables these celebrations to take place.

“It is a chance for all generations to thank and celebrate older people and the contributions they have made. These events give older people an opportunity to engage in cultural and social activities.

“Seniors’ Week for 2011 runs from March 20 to March 27,” Mr George said.

The grants program closes on Friday 27 August 2010 at 5pm.

Application forms are available on the Seniors’ Week website www.nswseniorsweek.com.au or my office on 66213624.
