Community groups from Mudgee, Rylstone, Kandos, and Gulgong were given a small but significant financial boost on Tuesday as Family First Credit Union presented their annual community grants. A morning tea set up in the Mudgee branch allowed groups to tell of how their granted money will fund certain projects or maintain services within the region. More than $7000 was presented between 23 recipients. Family First Credit Union director, Colin Lenten, said 25 applications were made for Mudgee’s 2013 Community Support Program and it was pleasing to see the donated money will go to great use. “These are a great bunch of people who I all know will benefit from ‘this extra financial boost,” he said. ‘Each of these recipients understand whilst the donations arc nothing huge, it certainly helps a little.
“Family First’s role is putting the community first.” The final donations were handed to:
