The Wollongong City Council cultural grant which we applied for back in late April was successful. WIRD have been given $1500 towards our ‘Steel City/Skate City’ event planned for the first quarter of 2010.
It was a bit of a shock as we had been informed we didn’t get it and so when the envelope was opened at our Merch craft day I was in such a state of shocked awe that it took me a few minutes to realise this news equalled me having written a successful grant application. I then jumped around like some kind of loon.
Next up, sporting grants.
