Submissions are now open for the 2013 NSW Seniors’ Week Grants program, Nationals Member for Lismore, Thomas George said today.

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 2013 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 2013 runs from March 17 to March 24,” Mr George said.

The grants program closes on Friday 7 September 2012.

Application forms are available on the Seniors’ Week website or my office on 66213624.
