The Hume Coal Charitable Foundation has awarded Challenge Southern Highlands AUS$10 000 in the first round of funding for 2018.
The Foundation’s Chairman, Terry Oakes-Ash OAM, said that Challenge Southern Highlands provides an amazing service to the local community through the support of adults with disabilities and is a deserving recipient of AUS$10 000 in 2018.
“I have a great deal of admiration for all the employees of Challenge Southern Highlands as they provide fundamental services to the Wingecarribee Shire through the delivery of local papers, light packaging, garden maintenance, document destruction and the nursery facilities.”
Project Director Greig Duncan said that Hume Coal was delighted to hear that immediately following the Charitable Foundation’s donation of AUS$10 000, the NSW State Government contributed a further AUS$200 000 to the organisation.
The Hume Coal Charitable Foundation offers funding across two rounds for organisations, which focus on education, indigenous programmes and not-for-profit pre-school child care. Interested organisations are encouraged to apply by downloading an application form at www.humecoal.com.au/community/.
