Defibrillator kit set to save lives in Warwick

June 29, 2021

Maranoa MP David Littleproud today announced the Anglican Parish of Warwick will make use of a $2,500 grant under the Stronger Communities Programme to purchase a defibrillator.

“This is great news for the Warwick community and the parishioners who are working hard behind the scenes to provide affordable facilities to the community,” Mr Littleproud said.

“The funding will support the purchase of a defibrillator kit for use by the many parish and community groups who utilise the facilities, as well as church services, baptisms, weddings and funerals held within the historically significant St Mark’s Church.

“The kit may help save a life and will contribute to a vibrant and viable community in Warwick.

“Regional communities are the heart of this country and I want to make sure that small capital projects are funded and the community gets exactly what it needs.”

Round 6 of the Stronger Communities Programme has seen $150,000 in Federal Government funding made available to Maranoa community groups. 14 projects were funded across Maranoa in this round.

Project grants range from $2500 to $20,000 to help bolster rural communities
