The funding is made available through the Department’s Community Support and Sector development program.

Chief executive officer David Neeves said the council had made the decision to distribute the funds to existing community organisations and events.

“James Cook University studies found that social events are pivotal to building community, spirit, resilience and alleviating the feeling of isolation,” said Mr Neeves.

“A large portion of our population are on remote stations; the nature of the grazing industry is not a 9am to 5pm job, and many men and women in the district commit their lives to grazing.”

“Social events, clubs and organisations, like the Cloncurry and District Show and the Burke and Wills Campdraft, are a few of the opportunities that enable people scattered far and wide to come together,” said Mr Neeves.

The groups and events that received funding include;

●Cloncurry and District Show Society.

●Burke and Wills Campdraft.

●Cloncurry and District Race Club May Meeting.

●Rockhana Gem and Mineral Festival.

●Cloncurry Stockman’s Challenge and Campdraft.
