THE City of Wanneroo will host a community funding program information session next month ahead of the next round of grant applications.

Community groups, organisations and clubs can learn more about the program at the Alkimos Pop-Up Library on August 18 by registering before August 15 via communityfunding@wanneroo.wa.gov.au .

Applications can be made between September 12 and October 24 for projects, activities and events planned from February 2019 on.

“Council is particularly supportive of events that connect residents and help build community spirit while encouraging residents to be healthy and active,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

Yanchep Districts Junior Football Club received $3000 last round, which went towards its annual gala day at Yanchep Active Open Space on July 15.

“Gala day is important because it’s a way for our club to engage with the wider Yanchep community, attract new club members, and secure local sponsors so we can keep operating,” club secretary Linda Cockman said.

“The funding received by the City of Wanneroo is fantastic because it goes towards financing the day’s activities.

“Ultimately, we want to grow our membership and sponsorship arrangements so we are financially secure and sustainable.”
