Representatives from some of the 43 organisations to recieve a heritage grant attended the announcement of the grants at the WA Rowing Club on Wednesday, October 15.
This is what Vice President Jessica Donnelly had to say:
Since then, I've (PBR) fielded phone calls and emails from all sorts of different people saying how happy they were to hear about the grant, and offering assistance and advice. I'd particularly like to thank Amalia Long who wrote the successful application (thanks champ!) and Clem Williams who was such a spectacularly good sport and appeared in photographs and all sorts of things.
You can hear Clem's interview with Paul Murray on 6PR here:
Of course, with great luck comes great responsibility. This heritage grant comes with quite a few requirements so in reality, this is the start of a process, and not the end.
We look forward to bringing you more updates on our work to build new slips at WARC.
