Community, Cultural and Environmental Grants were presented by the Mayor of Woollahra, Peter M Cavanagh, during a special event at Woollahra Council Chambers on 25 August.

Some of the outstanding initiatives awarded with funding include:

  • Splash without the Trash, a kayak and paddleboard group, which runs monthly harbour and beach clean-ups to remove litter from Rose Bay and surrounding beaches;
  • The Pick Me Up service, which provides free door-to-door medical-related transport for people who are physically, mentally, socially or financially disadvantaged; and
  • Cuddle Bundles, a volunteer project which helps mothers and babies in need by providing curated packs of baby items.

Mayor Cavanagh thanked the staff and volunteers of grant recipient organisations for their commitment to enhancing Woollahra and improving the quality of life of residents.

“It’s encouraging to see so many community organisations and individuals working actively within our local area,” the Mayor said.
