SUEZ helping Boddington connect
The Boddington Community Resource Centre has received $15,000 from waste and water management company SUEZ to help fund their Boddington Connect project.
The Boddington Connect project focuses on strengthening community engagement, well-being and skills through a number of local events and activities that reconnect both new and old residents in the community.
Boddington Community Resource Centre Manager Elizabeth Hoek was pleased to hear about the grant and said the funding will help to enhance community events and festivals that will connect the entire community in the Boddington Shire.
“We are running a number of local events to enhance community spirit which includes a community festival and street parade, Women’s network dinners, community activities through arts and culture initiatives and a multi-cultural celebration of Christmas,” said Mrs Hoek.
“The Boddington Connect program is looking to connect the community of Boddington with a particular focus on people out of work, suffering from loneliness and new residents from multi-cultural backgrounds.”
Craig Barker, SUEZ Infrastructure Manager WA presented the cheque to Mrs Hoek at the Women’s Networking Forum at the Boddington Community Resource Centre on Thursday night.
Mr Barker was pleased to hear that SUEZ’s contribution is continuing to enhance the community spirit for the local residents of Boddington.
“To plan a project that positively affects an entire community with a population of over 2,000 people is something that the entire Boddington Community Resource Centre should be extremely proud of,” said Mr Barker.
The SUEZ Community Grants program is now in its third year and the company has donated more than $400,000 to community organisations across Australia.
