Funding Assistance to Support Local Carols by Candlelight

Posted on: 08.09.2017

Wollondilly Shire Council is now accepting applications from local churches and community groups who are planning 2017 Carols by Candlelight events in Wollondilly, with funding of up to $500 available to eligible groups. Applications close Friday 6 October 2017.

Mayor Cr Judith Hannan invites the community to apply, stating “The Community Carols by Candlelight evening is a key event for many towns and villages and I have many memories of the Carols that I have attended throughout the years. Carols by Candlelight are a symbol of bringing our community together to celebrate the Christmas Season.

So it is with pleasure that I encourage local organisers to apply for these funds to help meet the cost of holding a Carols by Candlelight event.”

To be eligible for funding an organisation/community group must:

  • Be not for profit
  • Be an incorporated body or be auspiced (sponsored) by an incorporated body
  • Provide significant benefit to the Wollondilly LGA
  • Have no outstanding debts to Council

Applicants must demonstrate linkages to the Community Strategic Plan Outcomes and Strategies.

Applications are available from Council’s website or by contacting the Community Projects & Events Team Leader on 4677 9611.
