A generous donation will give the Southern Highland community excellent views well into the future.
The Veolia Mulwaree Trust presented a cheque to the Southern Highlands Hockey Association at Southern Highlands Hockey Centre on Tuesday, August 11 for $15,207 which will go towards three new spectator shelters.
The Veolia Mulwaree Trust manages and distributes funds to not-for-profit community groups and organisations.
The cheque was given by Veolia Mulwaree Trustee, Justin Houghton and president of the Southern Highlands Hockey Association Paul Sabatier was enthralled by the presentation.
"I was delighted to be presented a cheque from Veolia Mulwaree Trust for $15,207 to go toward three new spectator shelters at the Southern Highlands Hockey Centre," Sabatier said.
"The Southern Highlands Hockey Association (SHHA) will put in the same amount, fundraised by members, to complete the project.
"This is the latest piece of the vision for our newly refurbished facility that will give SHHA members and their families a world class sports venue to enjoy watching and playing hockey."
Veolia Mulwaree TrustGrants Officer, Vanessa Toparis said the trust holds two lots of funding rounds a year, and the SHHA excellent proposal sealed the deal.
"The Wingecarribee Shire is one of several government areas that is eligible to apply for these grants," Toparis said.
"With the SHHA body of work and proposal, we have been able to assist with the shelters to be built.
"We popped out to Welby to hand over the cheque and the Southern Highlands Hockey Centre is looking great.
"They've put a lot of work into the place. It's very impressive."
