ACCIONA Senior Manager Iain Lawrie said there was an increase in the number and quality of sponsorship applications this year.

Local Birregurra and Colac community, sport and education groups have benefitted from a funding boost from ACCIONA, the developer of the proposed Mt Gellibrand wind farm.    

A total of eleven community groups in the region have shared in this year’s sponsorship pool of more than $20,000.  The funding was delivered through ACCIONA’s Mt Gellibrand wind farm community sponsorship program. 

The sponsorship recipients include:

  • Anam Cara House Colac;
  • Birregurra and District Lions Club;
  • Birregurra CFA;
  • Birregurra Festival and Art Show;
  • Birregurra Preschool;
  • Colac Otway Sustainability Group;
  • Colac Police Youth Liaison Team;
  • Irrewarra Beeac Football Netball Club;
  • Otway Agroforestry Network;
  • Rotary Club of Colac; and
  • Warrowie Recreation Reserve.

 

ACCIONA Senior Manager Iain Lawrie said there was an increase in the number and quality of sponsorship applications this year.

“ACCIONA takes pride in supporting local communities and we were encouraged to see more applications this year from across the region.”

“The Mt Gellibrand wind farm community sponsorship program is a way of ensuring the benefits of renewable energy projects are spread throughout rural and regional communities,” Mr Lawrie said.

Applications for ACCIONA’s 2015 community sponsorship program will open early next year.
