CBH Group has given $150,000 to 38 community and not-for-profit organisations across regional Western Australia, including five in the Great Southern. 

The funding comes as part of the latest round in the company’s Grass Roots Grants program.

CBH Chief External Relations Officer Brianna Peake said the program supported groups and clubs who were fundraising for projects that are beneficial for their communities.

“Our Grass Roots Community grants is a significant element of our community investment program,” she said.

“This year will see more than $1.6 million invested in partnerships, events and activities in our regional communities.

“In this latest round, we received a growing number of applications from school P&C committees, sporting groups, regional event organisers and rotary clubs, among many applications.

“It was a hard choice for our grants committee to select the successful applications this round out of so many worthy submissions.”

Successful applicant Broomehill Recreational Complex received a $10,000 grant toward the installation of solar lighting.

Club Secretary Sara Robinson said they were thankful to CBH for supporting their small community.

“We will install solar lighting in the car park and along new paths at the Broomehill Recreational Complex,” she said.

“We are looking forward to our members and visitors being able to safely walk from the pavilion to their cars at night.”

Cranbrook Sporting Club, Ongerup Community Centre Management Committee, Plantagenet Junior Cricket Club and The Cranbrook Newsletter were the other recipients from the Great Southern.
