Local organisations, initiatives and projects in Cessnock and the surrounding areas are encouraged to make the most of a $1000 grant opportunity offered by the Lions Club of Cessnock.
The Cessnock club has signed on to help Lions Australia give away more than $100,000 to over 100 projects nationwide as part of its Community 100 program, which is being held in honour of Lions Club International’s centennial.
The grants will be given to projects that make a difference to the community in the fields of youth, vision, hunger or the environment.
The Lions Club of Cessnock will select three local finalists, from which Lions Australia will nominate a winning project for this area by mid-August 2016.
Application are open until June 30 and can be made at http://tinyurl.com/cessnocklionsclub/centenarygrant.
