Club Awards – Congratulations!

Congratulations to the Cowboys Leagues Club and Carina Leagues Club who took out the Queensland Government sponsored awards at the Keno & Clubs Queensland Awards for Excellence.

The Cowboys Leagues Club won the Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) Special Achievement Award for taking ownership of RSA and approaching it with a well-rounded strategy, exceeding the government’s code of conduct.

Carina Leagues Club took out the Responsible Gambling Special Achievement Award for creating a safe, supportive environment for gaming patrons and demonstrating excellence in the areas of community liaison, staff training and the implementation of responsible gaming initiatives.

It goes without saying that the responsible management of gaming and service of alcohol are critically important, so these awards are for clubs that excel. Congratulations!

Gambling Community Benefit Fund – Round 94

I was pleased to announce the list of more than 600 community groups who received $13.9 million worth of grants as part of Round 94 of the Gambling Community Benefit Fund in February.
It was exciting news for these groups as it now allows them to fund projects that would have otherwise been out of reach.

These grants are worth between $500 and $35,000 and are offered to help sporting clubs and community-based organisations purchase equipment and improve their facilities and services.

If you’re interested in learning which local groups near you benefited, the full list of successful applicants is available on the Department of Justice and Attorney-General website.

Applications for Rounds 95 and 96 have now closed. Successful applicants will be announced soon.
