Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has announced local organisations in Whyalla will benefit from Federal volunteer grants.
South Whyalla Cricket Club and the Whyalla Art Group both received funding that will go towards equipment and volunteer costs.
Mr Ramsey says these grants make a real difference to small community groups and the volunteer organisations have a profound impact on the ground for local towns.
He says they are the back-bone of our rural and regional communities
programs like the Community Sports Infrastructure Scheme, Building Stronger Communities and the Volunteer Grants provide valuable assistance for regional areas.
