NSW Nationals Upper House MP, Sam Farraway MLC was in Forbes on Friday to present a NSW Government grant on behalf of Minister for Regional Youth, Bronnie Taylor MLC to Boys to the Bush to support their community outreach program.
“After visiting and speaking with Tim West, Program coordinator for Boys to the Bush in April I was able to see firsthand the outcomes this organisation was achieving for local youth in the Forbes and Central West region,” Mr Farraway said.
“After meeting with Minister Taylor, we both share the admiration for the work Tim and his team are achieving and I’m delighted to present Boys to the Bush with a grant of $10,000 to support their camps and out-reach programs,” Mr Farraway said.
The $10,000 grant will be used to purchase a new boat, portable fridges, boating & camping equipment to enhance their outreach program for vulnerable youth within the central west community.
With outcomes for youth high on the priority list for the NSW and Federal governments the funds will no doubt make a massive difference.
