Funds for worthy projects

Just in: a photo from this morning’s cheque presentation in Wollongong. Northern Illawarra Chamber of Commerce received a $6,170 grant for the installation of two automated defibrillators – one to be placed at Helensburgh Library and one at Thirroul and District Community Centre.

Pictured are NICC president Greg Watts (Helensburgh Post Office) and NICC deputy Tanya Parry (SwitchedOnMechanical), with Mark Warren from Southern Phones (on left) and Wollongong City Lord Mayor Councillor Gordon Bradbery OAM (right).
Well done to Greg and Tanya, who worked hard on the grant application. Great job, NICC!
