A big thank you to everyone who came along to the Manor Lakes Spooktacular street party! It was a fabulous evening and great to see everyone in our community in costume enjoying the photo stations, food, festivities, and trick or treating.
Together as a community we raised over $10,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation! A massive effort. Congratulations to everyone who contributed and made this event a success.
They help to keep shared spaces safe, clean and great to be in.
If you've spotted damage or something that needs fixing within your neighbourhood, you can alert local 'solvers' by using the Snap Send Solve app and website. Solvers include local councils, water authorities, power companies, government organisations, telcos, universities, and much more!
Across Australia and New Zealand, their free app and website make it easy to notify the right people about issues that need a little attention. And then makes it even easier for them to get right down to Solving.
Thank you to everyone that submitted a Community Fund application and attended the presentation evening on Wednesday 25 October.
This year’s presentation evening was held at the Dennis Family Corporation’s Manor Lakes Estate, with Dennis Family Corporation CEO, Peter Levinge on hand to congratulate each of the not-for-profit groups that successfully applied. We look forward to hearing the impact these grants have on the local community.
Twenty local not-for-profit groups from within the Manor Lakes area have been awarded a share of $30,000 at Manor Lakes Community Fund evening, run by the Dennis Family Corporation.
This year’s event marks 21 years of Community Funds and over $1.2 million distributed across Dennis Family Corporation’s residential estates in Melbourne and Queensland since the concept was introduced in the early 2000s.
Entry is via gold coin donation to the Starlight Foundation. Manor Lakes will match every dollar our community raises to the Starlight Children’s Foundation. Donations can be made online prior to the event as well.
