Federal Member for Blaxland Jason Clare has visited the Bankstown PCYC to check out the new mini-bus.
Mr Clare provided $16,000 from his Stronger Communities Fund.
Mr Clare said the new bus would increase participation, “The new mini-bus means more opportunities for young people in our community to be involved at Bankstown PCYC”.
Bankstown PCYC Youth Coordinator, Bilal Hayek said “Our kids won’t have to pile into the back of the old Holden Commodore anymore.”
The Stronger Communities Programme provides grants, between $5,000 and $20,000, to not-for-profit organisations for small capital works projects that improve our local community.
The Blaxland Consultation Committee has approved a total of 21 projects over two rounds, with $290,695 worth of grants contributed to works in our local community.
