21 Nov Men’s Shed gains support from Queensland Freemasons Grant
In 2019, the Gladstone Men’s Shed was successful in their funding application for an EFTPOS facility through the Hand Heart Pocket 2018 Father’s Day Appeal, a charity provided by the generosity of the Queensland Freemasons. In less than a week of operations, the EFTPOS transactions exceeded over one thousand dollars in donations, member services and sales at the Shed’s very successful Garage Sale and Open Day. The EFTPOS machine will also come in handy at the Shed’s market stall as eight cruise ships visit Gladstone over a six week period.
President of the Gladstone Men’s Shed, Ron Steen, told Gladstone news “as the community tends to progress towards procuring goods and services by cashless means, this EFTPOS facility is assured of providing many years of useful service to the Gladstone Men’s Shed and it was very much appreciated to have been able to participate in this initiative of the Queensland Freemasons.”
