Boost for Men's Shed

THE Kilmore Men’s Shed received a $1,876 grant as part of the Australian Government National Shed Development Program (NSDP).

Federal Member for McEwen, Rob Mitchell, visited the Kilmore Men’s Shed last week to congratulate the group on the great news.

“These guys are highly involved in our community, not to mention the support they offer each other,” Mr Mitchell said.

Men’s Sheds provide an environment for men to make social connections, promote men’s health all the while tinkering in the workshop.

“This grant went towards to tools and equipment that can be used in the group, allowing a more productive and useful Men’s Shed in our community,” Mr Mitchell added.

The NSDP provides direct financial assistance to men’s sheds across Australia with priority given to those sheds in areas of greatest need.
