A charity that supports young people in Dubbo will be able to raise more money with the support of the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnerships program.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the Dubbo Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) secured $63,689 for a new King Kong catering trailer.
“From Project Waalway to its Fit for Life and Fit for Work programs, PCYC’s initiatives are so valuable for children and young people in our region – especially those who are vulnerable,” Mr Saunders said.
“As a charitable organisation, PCYCs rely heavily on donations to fund these initiatives.
“This food trailer will enable them to cater at more community events, in turn raising more money for their important programs.”
PCYC club manager Emily Ross said the catering van is run “purely” by volunteers – and they’re always looking for more.
“We were absolutely stoked, having a new van and being able to go to more events more easily is going to be absolutely critical for us,” Ms Ross said.
“Our volunteers put in tireless hours so to have new facilities for them to utilise will be incredible. They were beyond excited and shocked when I called with the good news!”
“This new van will also boost our emergency response, as it will be easily accessible and we can respond to communities in need and offer our services more readily.”
