A successful application to the Stronger Communities Program has welcomed $15,000 in Federal funding to the Donald Men's Shed.


Federal Member for Mallee, Andrew Broad says the group are hoping to use the grant money to add a storage shed and a disabled toilet.

“Our local men’s sheds are a vital part of our regional communities, and it’s great to be able to help a meaningful community project like this one go ahead,” he said.

“Men’s sheds provide a sense of community and purpose for a lot of locals in our region, as well as support their physical and mental health and wellbeing.”

With aims from this funding to not only benefit current members but to also encourage new memberships from the surrounding community.

The project is estimated to be completed around March with a total cost estimate at $64,900.
