Terminals supports Harmony Day with $2000 grant

MEDIA RELEASE - 18 March 2014

The Lions Club of Corio Norlane is the latest recipient of funds through the Terminals Community Grants Program with the club allocated $2000 to assist with the staging of its Harmony Day this Saturday (22 March).

The Harmony Day is being held on the grounds of Northern Bay College's Goldsworthy Road Campus from 10.00am to 3.00pm. The event involves numerous community groups and will feature multicultural music, dance, international food stalls, displays and children's entertainment.

Over the past two years Terminals has supported schools, community groups and sporting clubs by allocating grants totalling more than $37,000. The grants have helped 11 different organisations in the North Geelong region.

Funds are allocated for specific projects with a preference for those that improve the local environment, the local amenity and/or promote community education and/or awareness, especially amongst children. Some projects have received as much as $5000.

Earlier this year Leisure Networks was allocated $3000 and grants of $500 were awarded to Delta Therapy Dogs - Geelong and North Shore Netball Club. Previous grants have been allocated to St Thomas Aquinas Primary School, Bluebird Foundation, Saints Hockey Club, North Shore Recreation Club, TS Barwon Navy Cadets, Norlane Community Centre and Northern Bay College.

Australia's leading bulk liquid storage company, Terminals, has been based at its Wharf Road, North Geelong site since 1973. The company continues to request applications from the local community for grants through the Terminals Geelong Community Engagement Group. Applications must be made in writing to: Don McKenzie, Geelong Operations Manager, Terminals Pty Ltd, PO Box 78 North Shore VIC 3214.
