Men’s sheds, marine radio, monkey bars and much more... RACT Community Fund is providing assistance with the open day activities and the local R ACT branch will develop a longer- term relationship with the Kingston Shed. North West Environment Centre - Produce to the People Produce to the People’s ethos is ‘grow, gather, give’. They collect excess backyard and farm-grow n produce and deliver it to people in need via 16 agencies, community houses, shelters and schools along the North West Coast. They also plant ‘snack gardens’ in pr imar y schools, to provide interactive and educational opportunities for students to participate in growing their own, healthy, snack foods. Geographically the distribution area is a strip of over 140 kilometres, with deliver y happening at least twice a week. This is a tenfold increase in the amount delivered in recent years. A small g rant was approved to assist Produce to the People to continue to deliver food and supplies to other organisations, to help people in need. StudentWorks StudentWorks is a program for vulnerable northern Tasmanian students aged 14-16. The program has a long and successful history of providing oppor tunities to enhance students’ life prospects by intervening to prevent them disengaging from their education and to help prepare them for employment. StudentWorks’ data suggests that around 80% of students who participate in their program gain employment or retur n to further education. StudentWorks was successful in their application for assistance with a strategic plan for marketing and promotions to increase awareness of their program. A new moder n image is being developed and RACT has agreed to help with the cost of updated signage for their vehicle, which in addition to being used for business purposes, assists w ith school transport for rural students. Tea Tree Community Association - Community Hall Children’s Playground Project The Tea Tree Community Hall incorporates a small playground used by the travelling public as well as the local playgroup. The hall is the only facility of its kind in the district, and the playground contains old equipment overdue for replacement. The Tea Tree Community Association aims to upgrade the playground in consultation with a professional playground designer as part of a master plan to ensure that a diverse range of safe, professional, high-quality pieces of equipment are installed to appropriate standards. R ACT Community Fund will help the community association w ith the purchase of playground equipment.
