Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport
Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai—Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services)—Seniors play a vital role in local communities as volunteers, carers and grandparents, so I am pleased that Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport has received a $1000 grant for the 2022 NSW Seniors Festival. Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport is a not-for-profit community care organisation in Turramurra providing transport services to veterans and their families, people with disabilities and chronic illness, and adults aged 65 and over for food, medical and social purposes. Their winning project is titled 'Aloha Fun' which involves a planned outdoor luncheon at the Turramurra Seniors Centre for the 2022 Seniors Festival. The festival will run from 25 March to 3 April, providing seniors with cultural, creative, sporting and recreational opportunities as they re‑connect in the local community. I thank the NSW Government for its financial support and commitment to our valued seniors, and I congratulate Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Community Transport and the General Manager, Miss Helen Crouch, for their service to the community, as well as all other grant recipients.
