The Frenchville Sports Club Community Partnership Scheme supports many local groups each year and a presentation held on Friday, 14 February, brought together the 2024 recipients to acknowledge their vital roles in the community – including a group of popular older musicians from U3A

“Frenchville Sports Club is dedicated to actively endorsing sports and contributing to the local community. Their Partnership Program is a substantial commitment to supporting the Central Queensland Community,” U3A Rockhampton and District president Cheryl Wickes said.

“The U3A Rockhampton and District was one of the grateful recipients in 2024 with their Ukulele Group receiving funding towards purchasing audio equipment. “The ukulele group is popular around the city, performing at many events and venues. Their joyful and fun music is always welcomed wherever they perform.

“U3A expresses their grateful thanks to Frenchville Sports Club for this support, and for their ongoing support of U3A’s many activities.”
