The floor of the Jimboomba and District Sporting Association Inc is sparkling after the arrival of new state of the art industrial floor scrubber, thanks to our Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grant.

Jimboomba and District Sporting Association Inc President Jennifer Bishop said the $6,500 grant enabled them to replace aging equipment to ensure they can provide a safe and hygienic space for sport and recreation groups, including the Jimboomba Amateur basketball, Illusions Gymnastics and Shokotan Karate.

“The addition of the new cleaning equipment will be a huge help for keeping our facilities in top condition for our basketball, rhythmic gymnastics and karate community who use the facilities on a daily basis,” said Ms Bishop.

“It is essential to ensure that the floors are clean for all the activities run at our facility, especially now with Covid-19 cleaning protocols, and the Queensland Country Bank funding received ensures that we can continue to keep our facilities in a condition that all our members deserve.”

Jimboomba Branch Manager Kym Locke said she was delighted that a local association was one of eight community groups throughout Queensland to receive a share of the $120,000 grant funding awarded in this year’s Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grants. 

“Jimboomba and District Sporting Association Inc provides a central meeting point for like-minded people to come together to enjoy their hobbies and activities, which is so important for physical and mental wellbeing and to create a healthy community,” Ms Bishop said.

“We’re pleased that the Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grant can contribute to providing safe and welcoming facilities for the Jimboomba community to enjoy.

“As a member-owned Bank that puts people ahead of profits, we take great pride in being able to give back to our local communities in this way.”

This is the fourth year that our Queensland Country Good for Good Community Grants program has been run, and it follows a long history of supporting the community through grants with over $2.4 million injected into Queensland community projects since 2005
