Forbes Dragon Boat Club has been named one of Essential Energy’s Community Choices Champions for 2022.
Votes from the Forbes community provided the Forbes Dragon Boat Club with the support needed to assist them in the purchase of a 20 seat paddling boat as part of their equipment upgrade program.
“We feel so grateful to have the ongoing support of our community, and thanks to the $2,500 funding we’ve received through Essential Energy’s Community Choices program, we will be able to continue supporting them back,” President, Kathryn Sweeney said.
Essential Energy’s Chief Commercial Officer, Justin Hillier said the company is delighted to share the funding between community organisations in its network area.
“Essential Energy people live and work in towns across regional NSW and we see first-hand the difference these groups can make, that’s why we value this opportunity to give back to our local heroes,” Mr Hillier said.
