The North Coast National – Lismore Showground was awarded $12,000 under the Building Stronger Communities program that will be matched by the North Coast National – Lismore Showground.
The Lismore Showgrounds have many people with disabilities visiting each year and have a regular visits by children with a disability as part of the Red INC Pony Riding Club.
‘We want to make sure all members of the community can enjoy using this community asset,’ said John Gibson, president of the North Coast National – Lismore Showground Committee.
‘It is going to make a big difference for many in the community.’
The current facilities can be difficult for people to use, especially the children and the installation of two new disabled toilets and showers will help create a more inclusive environment said Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan.
