MORE than $37,000 has been poured back into the community thanks to the Elmore/Lockington/Rochester Community Bank.
The grants are part of round three of its Community Sponsorship Program, which is open to all organisations and groups in the Elmore, Lockington and Rochester districts.
Lockmore Financial Services chair Brad Drust thanked the successful groups for the work they do in our communities.
“These hardworking groups and organisations make up the fabric of our communities, and we are proud to provide some support to make their priority programs, projects and events happen,’’ he said.
