Huon gives a Helping Hand

On Monday 9th May, Huon held their biannual morning tea for the successful recipients of the sixth round of Huon’s Helping Hand community grants at Franks Cider Bar and Café in Franklin.

Huon’s Helping Hand community grants are held twice a year in March and September and offer community groups up to $3000 to assist with projects that provide long term benefits to their local community. It is open to groups across Tasmania with a major focus on the communities in which Huon operate, particularly the Huon Valley and the North and North-West.

Peter Bender, Co-founder and Managing Director of Huon Aquaculture, was on hand to congratulate all the successful grant recipients along with the Helping Hand decision making panel comprising of staff from across the business.

“We believe it is important to give back to the communities that we are a part of, and that is why we developed our Helping Hand community grants program.

“To date, our Helping Hand community grants program has funded 109 projects in communities across Tasmania with most of these in the Huon Valley.

“I encourage anyone with a great idea, event, program, project or initiative that will benefit their local community, to apply in the next round of grants in September.”
