Great news for Helensburgh Men’s Shed!
The State Government has handed the group $15,000 to help buy much-needed dust extraction equipment, so they can safely continue contributing to the local community.
The relatively new group shares premises with other community groups, but is looking for a more permanant home.
Wollongong Councillor Leigh Colacino lobbied for the funding. “We are so pleased to be able to give back to a great bunch of guys,” says Mr Colacino. “They do a wonderful job supporting one another and the community of the Northern Illawarra.”
Both Mr Colacnio and Heathcote MP Lee Evans have thanked Pastor Lionel Rattenbury of Helensburgh Hope Church for his support and vision in helping get the Men’s Shed off the ground.
