Over $52,000 in grants for Singleton community

The Bridgman Ridge Community Trust has allocated a variety of Singleton community groups and not-for-profit organisations a share of $52,000.
The Trust was established to return to the community a portion of the money generated by the sale of land at Bridgman Ridge. Each year applications are invited from not-for-profit organisations based in or delivering a project in the Singleton Local Government Area.
