ACCIONA’s Waubra Site Manager Cameron Stowe has today announced the winners of the 2016 Waubra wind farm Community Sponsorship Program.

Mr Stowe said "ACCIONA is committed to supporting the local community around our Waubra wind farm.

"ACCIONA has now provided more than $110,000 to local community and sporting groups within the Pyrenees Shire and the City of Ballarat since the program commenced.

"ACCIONA congratulates the successful applicants and thanks all of the organisations for sharing their fantastic projects with us."

The Daffodil and Floral Extravaganza was held last weekend. Society President Tony McDonald said "the event was a thorough success and we are grateful to ACCIONA for their support.

"We look forward to holding a bigger and even better event next year."
