Refurbished kitchen and new air conditioning for Collie PCYC under WA Labor

Posted on February 19, 2021
  • A re-elected McGowan Labor Government will provide $60,000 to the Collie PCYC
  • Funding will be used to refurbish kitchen and install air conditioning
  • Local youth to benefit from upgrades

Young local Collie residents will benefit from a $60,000 commitment by WA Labor to refurbish the kitchen and install air conditioning at the Collie PCYC.

The centre at Forrest Street in Collie caters to all ages in the community and provides structured activities in a safe, controlled environment, including gymnastics, mountain biking and boxing and martial arts classes.

As a small regional town, Collie PCYC is at the heart of the community, both in its location in the centre of the town and as a go-to place for local young people.

The installation of air conditioning will make the centre a more comfortable place for people to spend time in and the refurbishment of the kitchen will ensure health and safety requirements are adhered to.

Comments attributed to Premier Mark McGowan:

“Collie PCYC offers local youth in the Collie area a friendly place to go – somewhere they can feel at home, make friends and do things young people should do.

“It is a popular place to hang-out and provides a range of recreational activities and specialised programs.

“Investing in this important local organisation will help to keep the community safe and strong.”

Comments attributed to WA Labor Candidate for Collie-Preston Jodie Hanns:

“As a local teacher I know firsthand the important work that Collie PCYC does with children and young people.

“Collie PCYC is a safe environment where young people can come and chat to staff about any issues that they may be dealing with.

“Providing them with $60,000 for air conditioning and a kitchen refurbishment is a great way to support their work into the future.”
