A $25,000 grant has been shared between four local community groups to help undertake key projects. The funds, provided by public telecommunications provider Southern Phone, will help support the: Bellingen's Swim Centre (YMCA) for the installation of disabled pool hoist; Dorrigo Girl Guides to upgrade their community kitchen; Bellingen Girl Guides to upgrade their community kitchen; and 1st Bellingen Scout Group to purchase new sporting equipment.
One group thankful for the extra cash is the Dorrigo Girl Guides Association. They told the Courier-Sun "part of the money received has been allocated to paying rates and the remainder is to be put towards buying a new oven for the Girl Guide Hall".
