The Road Ahead : December 2012
9 DEC 2012/JAN 2013 THE ROAD AHEAD RACQ FOUNDATION COMMUNITY That's what we're fighting for, just to keep farmers on their farms and give them hope for better days ahead ... molasses and food for the table. Mr Egan called on those with spare time to become involved in the Aussie Helpers campaigns to keep farmers in business. He said Aussie Helpers could not carry out its work without the generosity of organisations and groups, such as the RACQ Foundation. "It's a minor miracle we've achieved, getting people back up and running. We couldn't do it if organisations such as the RACQ didn't support us." "The funding was wonderful -- like Santa Claus had arrived," Mr Egan said. The RACQ Foundation was established in January 2011 in response to floods and cyclones in Queensland. The Foundation has so far provided approximately $6 million to more than 100 community groups throughout the state. With much of the flood and cyclone reconstruction finished, the RACQ Foundation is expanding its brief for funding eligibility, RACQ president Geoff Leddy said. He said money would be put aside from the RACQ's three- part $20 million assistance package to assist community organisations recover from future natural disasters. Meanwhile, groups were welcome to apply for a maximum $50,000 per project for community projects related to road safety, driver education, motoring and mobility, a sustainable environment, and community protection and resilience. The next deadline for funding applications is December 31. With six convenient South East Qld locations, see why so many choose Seasons 1300 506 116 seasonsagedcare.com.au ( Friendships Flourish.
