Community and Business Grant Recipients

Community and Business Grant Recipients

At Summerland, we see the building and strengthening of our local communities as an integral part our business. As a community minded financial institution, we are proud to be able to give back to a number of worthy organisations that make a difference to people’s lives. The recipients of the most recent round of Community and Business Grants have been announced:

 

Bangalow Koalas

As a not-for-profit environmental organisation set up to protect and save our koala population in the Northern Rivers, the Bangalow Koalas are creating a koala wildlife corridor connecting Byron Bay and surrounds west towards Repentance Creek. By linking existing forage trees and habitat with new plantings, the organisation will be able to protect local koalas and provide "stepping stones" for them to move safely across the landscape.

 

Care-Ring Children’s Centre

Based in Goonellabah, this community-based child care centre will use their grant to update the centre’s vegetable garden and the outdoor play area. This will assist in teaching children about growing their own vegetables, water conservation and caring for the environment.
