THE NSW Government has given the Oberon Children’s Centre a helping hand to keep its overheads down.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has announced the centre will receive a Community Building Partnership (CBP) grant of $5100 to bring major energy savings to the centre.

The money will fund the installation of an energy efficient power system, enabling greater efficiencies in the day-to-day running of the facility.

Mr Toole said it’s good news for the centre as keeping energy costs down means more funds can be put back into making conditions better for the children.

“I know the funding has been welcomed by the centre as it strives to keep its overheads as low as possible,” he said.

The NSW Government says the Community Building Partnership program has funded some 13,800 community projects since it started nearly a decade ago.
