Local sport, health and education initiatives have benefitted from a community partnership program which has awarded 12 grass-roots groups a total of $9000 to support their efforts in 2013.

Local sport, health and education initiatives have benefitted from a community partnership program which has awarded 12 grass-roots groups a total of $9000 to support their efforts in 2013.

Organisations in Mortlake, Kolora, Noorat and Terang have shared in the funding pool, which was delivered through ACCIONA’s Mortlake South Wind Farm community sponsorship program. 

Some of the recipients include;

  • Deakin University Mortlake Football Netball Club - $2500 club sponsorship, which has helped to buy new training uniforms for junior players;
  • Beacon BBQ with the Boys, Mortlake College - $1250 for an event run by Mortlake College and the Beacon professional development program, which aims to foster youth career paths;
  • Mortlake Playgroup – a $500 donation to assist with the upgrade of the local playground;

Iain Lawrie, ACCIONA Senior Manager, said it was good to see a broad cross-section of community groups supported through the sponsorship program.

“We had some fantastic submissions this year, and it was great to be able to support these hard-working groups,”  Mr Lawrie said.   "They put a lot of time and energy into supporting their communities, so it’s great that we can lend a hand through ACCIONA’s Mortlake South project."  There will be another opportunity for local community based organisations to apply for sponsorship in 2014.

ACCIONA’s Mortlake South sponsorship program began in 2012, when nearly $9000 was awarded to community groups.  Details on how to apply for sponsorship in 2014 will be included on the ACCIONA website www.acciona.com.au in early 2014.  ACCIONA continues planning for the $200 million Mortlake South Wind Farm, which will be made up of 51 turbines able to power up to 41,000 homes annually.
