The Tamborine Mountain Community Men’s Shed Association has received a boost to continue its work in the local community through the Federal Government’s National Shed Development Program.
The Tamborine Mountain Community Men’s Shed Association received $2,800 to purchase materials and vices to build work benches – allowing members to produce quality products and community projects.
President Steve Pinder said the Men’s Shed provided a space for members to connect and share a sense of belonging and togetherness.
“We bring locals together to have a cup of tea, meet new people, talk about themselves, their problems and share their skills. It really changes their lives,” Mr Pinder said.
“This funding is vital to continue our work in the community. We’re creating toys for underprivileged children this Christmas and we help those in the community with general repairs.”
Mr Buchholz congratulated the Tamborine Mountain Community Men’s Shed Association on their success.
“The Tamborine Mountain Community Men’s Shed Association makes such a difference in the lives of its members – improving their health and wellbeing while in the workshop,” Mr Buchholz said.
“I’m proud to be part of a government that supports the initiatives of community-minded groups like the Tamborine Mountain Community Men’s Shed Association through this grant.”
“I thank them for their continued commitment and service to our community.”
