Good Morning Macarthur’s Community Studio will soon open its doors, thanks to a Community Building Partnerships grant.
This facility will enable us as a community to embrace our diversity, share our stories through film, music and spoken word, and we are grateful to our State Member Greg Warren for helping us to secure the grant.
Twelve Campbelltown organisations in total will share in the 2022 Community Building Partnerships grants to fund smartboards, community transport vehicles and spectator seating among other projects.
Campbelltown MP Greg Warren said he was thrilled to have helped these community projects.
“These projects will make an enormous difference to many people within our community,” he said.
“I am so proud to have worked with our community to secure many Community Building Partnerships grants since first being elected as the Member for Campbelltown in 2015.”
Up to $400,000 was available for projects in each state electorate as part of the program.
