Neighbourhood Grants Program winners announced

February 2018

Seven local groups will share in $10,000 to help deliver important community services thanks to the Cedar Woods’ Neighbourhood Grants Program.

The grants will deliver a range of services including much needed equipment for local cricket and soccer clubs – plus important safety improvements for a junior football club.

WA State Manager for Cedar Woods, Ben Rosser, said he was thrilled to be able to support seven local community groups in the surrounding areas of Bushmead in a share of $10,000.

“We are excited to announce Swan View Cricket Club, Forrestfield United Soccer Club, High, Wycombe Junior Football Club, Medjugorje Centre, High Wycombe Cricket Club, Kalamunda Cricket Club and Helena Valley Primary School are this year’s winners for the Neighbourhood Grants Program,” Mr Rosser said. 

“At Cedar Woods, we believe in being an active part of communities and do our best to offer initiatives like our Neighbourhood Grants Program to support those based in, or providing services to, our estates.” 

President of High Wycombe Junior Football Club, Greg Geier, said the support from The Neighbourhood Grants Program would assist with keeping player’s safety top of mind.  

“We are thrilled to be one of the community groups to receive a share in $10,000 from the Neighbourhood Grants Program,” Mr Geier said.  

“The grant will allow us to have a St Johns Ambulance at all junior home games to provide a safe environment for players and spectators for the 2018 season.” 

Cedar Woods has donated more than $415,000 nationally through the Neighbourhood Grants Program since its inception in 2009 and continues to support communities in the surrounding areas of Bushmead.

Winners were announced at a celebratory community event at Bushmead Sales Office on Wednesday 21 February.
