Baldivis Belles use grants for free CWA memberships

THREE not-for-profit groups in Baldivis have received grants from property developer Cedar Woods.

Baldivis Primary School will use $3500 for its school breakfast program and the Baldivis Belles Country Women’s Association will use $1500 to create an award and seven first-year memberships.

Linda Tammen said the memberships would help women who were put off by the joining fee.

“We’re going to use the grant to offer free memberships to women who might have always wanted to take the plunge and join but were put off by the $65 fee,” she said.

“The more people who join the branch, the more we can do to help improve the lives of people in the community, especially in the mental health space.”

“The Baldivis Belles chapter of the CWA has only been around about three years and already we are one of the biggest in the state.”

The Baldivis Little Athletics Centre will use $5000 to buy new hurdles and high jump mats.

The three group were among nine not-for-profit groups to share in $30,000 of funding through the Cedar Woods Neighbourhood Grants program.
