Windellama Peanut Wellness Sanctuary Receives Government Funding | Goulburn Post

news, local news,

The Peanuts Wellbeing Sanctuary in Windellama does a fantastic job of breaking the cycle of child and animal abuse. The non-profit charity joins their rescued animals with children from dysfunctional, neglected and abusive backgrounds to teach young people that violence is not the solution and in turn keeps them away from bullying, violence domestic and a life of crime. Peanuts Wellbeing Sanctuary Director Tracey Keenan and the rest of the team were all thrilled with the $ 2,500 they received from federal volunteer grants. “The money will go to our volunteers and help them get the equipment they need,” Ms. Keenan said. “Our volunteers mean a lot to us because without them we cannot do what we are doing. READ ALSO: Another organization that received funding from the same grant was the Goulburn and Southern Tablelands Amateur Radio Society (GSTARS). Hume MP Angus Taylor said they were well deserving of the $ 5,000. “GSTARS had a great app that met all the criteria for the program and I know it was rated well by the community panel members,” Taylor said. “The group has great members of all ages and has been active in this region for over 40 years, so it’s great to be able to support its members and ensure that they can continue to pursue their passion for radio and electronics. ” Other organizations in the area to receive funds were Baptist Care NSW and ACT ($ 5,000), Broadway Rural Fire Brigade ($ 1,920), Crookwell Meals on Wheels ($ 1,000), Crookwell CWA Evening Branch ($ 1,049 ), Goulburn Community Radio ($ 1,400), Goulburn Crookwell Heritage Railway ($ 4,092), Home Start National ($ 5,000), Tallong Community Discussion Group ($ 3,000), Tarago & District Men’s Shed (3,999 $) and Tarago Sporting Association ($ 1,313).
