The Katherine Men’s Shed has been awarded a grant of $7000 from the Federal Government for first aid kits, CPR training and tools.
The grant has been made under round 17 of the government’s National Shed Development Program.
Senator Nigel Scullion congratulated the Katherine Men’s Shed for its successful application for the grant.
Senator Scullion said Katherine Men’s Shed will use its CLP grant to purchase a first Aid kit, defibrillator, fire safety equipment and signage, CPR training, PPE; tools and equipment including laptops, software, and laptop bags.
“The Men’s Shed in Katherine has only been established in recent months and renovation works on their shed at the Rotary Club on Rapide Street are going well thanks to the support of the community and their shed is excepted to open by end of the year.
“Members are already doing some great work for the community by building 30 bird nests for the upcoming Katherine Bird Festival,” Senator Scullion said.
Men’s sheds offers support to any local men who need a bit of space and some friendly, easy-going company.
