Progress Printing has recently made a donation of $1,460 to the Condobolin Skatepark Committee.
The grant is the result of a decision to contribute 10% of the proceeds from Progress Printing’s 2011-2012 Community and Business Directory to a suitable community project.
Helen Barrass, Marketing Coordinator for Progress Printing, said the organisation would continue to nominate different community organisations to benefit from sales of the business directory over the coming years.
“Next year it might be a different project,” she said.
“Hopefully the skatepark is built by then.
“Obviously (choosing the site) has been a bit contentious and the project needs to go through the necessary processes to see what the community wants.”
Helen said she believed the skatepark would eventually have an incredibly positive impact on the town’s young people.
“It’s a good project and will keep the youth occupied,” she said.
“Condobolin’s produced some athletes over the years that have gone all the way to the top; so this skatepark will be good for the town I’m sure.
“The project needs to be community driven; the community needs to get involved in it.”
