Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group hosted an afternoon tea on Wednesday 23 November, 2016, to announce and celebrate the 16 local community groups and organisations that have received support from the coal terminal through the latest round of grants.The latest funding round attracted a range of high calibre applications from worthy groups and organisations. Newcastle Coal is proud to be able to support so many wonderful groups that provide programs and initiatives to the broader community.
A number of Newcastle Coal representatives and community members were responsible for selecting the 16 successful applicants, pledging more than $87,00 to the groups chosen.
Since the Community Support Program started in 2010, Newcastle Coal has contributed more than $1.1 million in funding to local groups. We have been able to support a range of organisations from sporting clubs, children’s health programs, education initiatives, community well-being programs and environmental improvement programs.
Congratulations to all the successful recipients.
