Collie Community Fund
In a first for Collie, Verve Energy set up an exciting community grant project called the Verve Energy Collie Community Fund. It directly benefits local people and local projects.
Each year Verve Energy invites community groups or organisations in the Collie area to apply for funding of up to $1000 for a project or initiative which will benefit the community.
The focus is youth and the environment, however, other areas such as arts, sports and cultural events are considered if they involve the whole community.
The Verve Energy Collie Community Fund is the first community fund to be set up in Collie to directly benefit local people and local projects.
Verve Energy’s Muja Power Station Manager, Ian Norminton, said Verve Energy has been part of the community for more than 40 years, and this was an opportunity to give more to the community.
Verve Energy’s employees can contribute through automatic payroll deductions if they wish.
The advisory committee members are Ian Norminton, Manager Muja Power Station; Sarah Stanley, representing the local community; Mark Sanders, carpenter and business owner; Grace Pears, retired community member; Wayne Sanford, Collie Shire President; Mick Murray, MLA; Mick Hill, maintenance superintendent at MPS; and Robert Cavanagh, general assistant maintenance at MPS.
Verve Energy invites community groups or organisations in the Collie area to apply for funding for a project or initiative which will benefit the community.
