QCoal Foundation extends support to Collinsville Connect Telecentre

The QCoal Foundation has further cemented its partnership with the Collinsville Connect Telecentre through a new 2020 Community Growth Grant of $15,000.

Awarded annually in January, the 2020 Community Growth Grants support community-led initiatives to improve liveability, health and education in communities throughout rural and remote Queensland.

The Collinsville Connect Telecentre provides comprehensive Information Communication Technology (ICT) services and support to the Collinsville and Scottville communities and has played a key role in community initiatives such as the Pit Pony Experience.

CCT co-ordinator Sue Clark thanked the QCoal Foundation for its ongoing support and recognising the important role the centre played in the community.

“We really do appreciate this support,” Ms Clark said.  “We literally would not be here without it, that is no exaggeration.”

“This is the third year in a row that QCoal has supported us with this grant and from all of us at the Telecentre, and the community, I’d like to say a really big thank you.”
