Bundaberg’s NEW iMAGE Laundry is one of the more than 500 community groups across Queensland to share in $13 million in Gambling Community Benefit Fund grants.
The social enterprise and commercial laundry, which provides employment and skills for vulnerable people, received over $30,000 to buy new dryers to meet local demand for laundering services and create more jobs.
There were 545 successful organisations in this round of grants.
Attorney-General, Minister for Justice and Minister for the Prevention of Domestic and Family Violence Yvette D’Ath said these kinds of local organsations were at the heart of many Queensland communities.
“Every one of the grant recipients, whether it be a sporting club, a multicultural organisation, or a domestic violence service, will be able to fund projects that benefit their local community,” Attorney-General D’Ath said.
“Congratulations to all of those Queensland clubs and organisations who have been successful this round – I look forward to seeing all of the amazing projects come to fruition.”
