Govt grants helping seniors celebrate
TWO organisations in the Clarence Valley have been successful in securing NSW Government grants to help celebrate Seniors Week 2014.
Clarence MP Chris Gulaptis said Clarence Valley Council would receive $1000 and the New School of Arts Neighbourhood House was getting $500 to help them prepare seniors events.
"Seniors play a significant part in our society and they deserve to be celebrated and have their contributions honoured," Mr Gulaptis said.
"They have fought off some tough competition, as there was significant interest from hundreds of other communities and organisations throughout NSW," Mr Gulaptis said.
Organisations planning events for Seniors Week can register their events for free online.
