Cooma Rotary snags a new BBQ
Charity events in Cooma are set to sizzle, with funding being set aside for Cooma Rotary to purchase a new BBQ. Parliamentary Secretary for Southern NSW Bronnie Taylor MLC attended the Cooma Rotary Markets and presented the Cooma Rotary with the funding over the weekend.
“Our local Rotary helps out wherever they can, so it is fantastic to be presenting Cooma Rotary with $10,000 for a new BBQ trailer,” Mrs Taylor said. “The Cooma Rotary has the community at the front and centre of everything they do, and this funding will allow our local Rotary to purchase and operate a brand new, purpose-built BBQ trailer.
“Following this funding allocation, the Cooma Rotary will now get to work on finding, ordering and purchasing the new BBQ. Keep an eye out for the new unit at upcoming Rotary markets.” Member for Monaro John Barilaro said he was thrilled with the NSW Liberals and Nationals Government’s support for the Cooma Rotary. “I’ve spent many cold mornings firing up a rickety old barbie to cook snags for local charities or at sports events. Having a brand spanking new BBQ will go a long way to making the cooking experience a little easier,” said Mr Barilaro.
“Cooma Rotary relies on money raised from their fundraising BBQs to provide a wide variety of services to the local community. I’m pleased the NSW Government is supporting this fantastic organisation so it can continue the valuable work it performs in our community.”
Cooma Rotary Club president John King said he’s pleased the club has been recognised for their hard work.
“We have been operating in the Cooma community since 1953. The BBQ is our most important tool for fundraising, our BBQ is 40 years old and has well and truly reached it’s used by date. “Being gifted $10,000 means we don’t need to dip into our own funds to buy a new BBQ and that means we can put more money back into the community.”
