BUNBURY community groups and councils are invited to participate in setting election commitments for Bunbury under WA Labor’s Community Improvement Fund.

Announcing the launch of applications this week, Labor candidate for Bunbury Don Punch said the Community Improvement Fund would help provide a vital boost for many important community initiatives if WA Labor is elected at the March 2017 election

Mr Punch, the former CEO of the South West Development Commission, said he had seen first hand the importance and value of providing funding support to organisations and community groups in the Greater Bunbury Region.

“The Bunbury region has for many years had a terrific culture driven by its community groups and volunteers,” Mr Punch said.

“I’ve seen the importance these groups play in making our region a vibrant place to live, work and raise a family.

“This fund will empower community organisations to deliver projects that may have been out of reach.

“This program will allow community groups to directly influence WA Labor’s election commitments for Bunbury and ensure a McGowan Labor government will provide the community of Bunbury with the opportunities it needs”

Mr Punch said community organisations and local governments could apply under WA Labor’s Community Improvement Fund.
Organisations can request an application form by emailing bunbury@walabor.org.au. Applications should be posted to PO Box 218, Bunbury WA 6231, or emailed to bunbury@walabor.org.au. Applications must be received by Friday 25 November.
