REAPING THE BENEFITS
THE Penshurst Men’s Shed are thrilled with the commitment this week of $44,777 to extend their workshop space, making it more modern, positive and safe space for men and women to work together.
Western Victoria MP, Jaala Pulford, announced on Wednesday that the Penshurst and Harrow communities would receive $60,000 as part of the Labor Government’s 2018-19 Men’s Shed funding round.
Ms Pulford said men’s sheds had proven health and social benefits, allowing local people to form friendships in their local community.
“I’m delighted to see this funding which will engage more men in the Harrow and Penshurst communities, giving them the chance to come together and catch up with mates,” Ms Pulford said.
