Community group boosted by
RACT Insurance grant
THE City of Glenorchy Golden Years Club was among the 41 successful applicants across Tasmania to receive community grants through the newly established RACT Insurance COVID-10 Community Support Fund.
The RACT Insurance COVID-19 Community Support Fund was created to address the pressures local community groups and charities faced as a result of COVID-19.
RACT Insurance chief executive officer Trent Sayers said it was clear from the magnitude of funding requests received through the grant program that local community groups were struggling financially from the impact of COVID-19.
“There is significant need for these types of grants which help to fill a void in our community and support those groups whose normal operational cash flow has been disrupted, including assisting groups to cover ongoing fixed costs,” he said.
“Keeping our communities strong and connected is vital and we are very aware of the important role these groups will play in rebuilding and bringing us all back together as the threat of COVID-19 continues to ease.”
Mr Sayers said it had been a humbling experience to be able to provide financial support to so many groups and charities across the state which were struggling to make it through in these unprecedented circumstances.
“As Tasmanians we are all in this together and we take our role of supporting our community through this difficult time seriously,” he said.
The Glenorchy Golden Years Club was established in the late 1960s and is run by a dedicated committee of members.
Glenorchy Golden Years Club coordinator Marg Cooper said the $2,500 grant was a huge boost to the club, which plays an important role in the community.
“This grant will be used to cover ongoing expenses from the last three months as we haven’t been getting any income,” she said
“We do meals a couple of days a week and then also have bingo and cards and all those sort of activities that oldies love.
“The club gives people something to do so they’re not stuck at home all day and every day – the friendship and interaction is good for them.”
