AN automotive repair program in New Norfolk was one of four community programs in Tasmania to share in more than $34,000 in Seeds of Renewal grants from the ANZ Bank last month. Funded by ANZ and independently administered by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR), Seeds of Renewal provides grants of up to $10,000 for education and employment programs in regional communities.
The Derwent Valley Community House was awarded $9705 towards its automotive repair program for 42 youths at the Community Shed at Carinya Education Park in Blair St, New Norfolk. At a presentation last month, the Community House received a cheque and a commemorative plaque.
"This year a big part of our focus was on education and employment programs and we’re proud to be involved in establishing training programs for youth, as well as funding for employment programs, just to name a few," ANZ regional business banking executive Chris Sparks said.
