On Friday 23 August 2020, Local Member for Manly, James Griffin MP, handed over a cheque for $90,000 to Community Northern Beaches Executive Director, John Kelly, accompanied by the President of Community Northern Beaches, Adele Heasman and Treasurer Bill Barnes. This funding was provided by The Hon. Brad Hazzard, MP, Minister for Health, to assist Community Northern Beaches with the costs involved in the recent move into 52 Raglan Street, Manly and the continued establishment of the Northern Beaches largest Community Hub.
James has been a tremendous supporter of Community Northern Beaches for a number of years, even prior to his term in State Parliament. James recognises the critical work we undertake at a grassroots level on the Beaches, and the continued difficulties frontline community organisations battle in providing face-to-face care and support. On behalf of our clients, staff, volunteers and supporters, thank-you James and Brad.
