Hi Shane,

Woohoo that’s awesome that Holland Park Hawks were successful with the QRIDA application you did for them. We thought they weren’t going to get up!

Thank you

Thank you Shane,

At this stage I do not believe we need further assistance with additional funding.

I am working with the Community and Recreational Assets Recovery and Resilience Program, however we have this in hand.

Your assistance has been much appreciated.

Thanks Shane for the grant rationale this is great and yes I agree that each consultant would have their own way of going about things.

I’ve been getting great feedback from the tenants you are working with.

Grant Writing Testimonial – Innisfail Golf Club

Good morning David & Rob

What great new this week for Innisfail Golf Club to be advised that our Club has been successful in our Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) Round #113 Grant application.

With the floods in SEQ earlier in the year and the consequential extension to the GCBF Super Round application closing date to allow those affected organisations time to apply, an extraordinary number of applications were submitted and so to be successful is a huge vote for our Club, Project and supporters. Indeed of the approx. 520 successful Rd#113 applications I see only 7 Golf Clubs in the listing with 2 only of these granted the full $100k (Mt Isa and Innisfail).

As a small, but growing Club we are extremely motivated to turn our Project application into a community reality and we owe  many thanks to you David / Golf Australia and Rob / Red Tape Busters in giving us this opportunity.

Best Regards, Craig

Thank you so much for your efforts. The Treasurer , David Sydes , and I have reviewed the application and sent it. We altered the Federal MP to reflect the change since the election to Elizabeth Watson Brown.

Let’s hope it is successful.

Hello Cinnamon

Hope you are well and going ok at the moment – we are delighted to advise that we have received the QRIDA grant for assistance to repair our internal ceilings.

Thank you so much for Council’s assistance in providing not only the initial funding of $5,000 but also a grant writer to help us in preparing the grants.  Shane and his team were fabulous and easy to work with so thank you.

We look forward to hearing more from BCC about the roof repairs and will start the process of engaging the builder to sort the internal repairs.

Thanks again and please contact me or Paul Holley if you have any queries regarding this correspondence.

Kind regards
