Facilities for young residents

LOCAL kids have received a boost with the donation of more than $18,000 to Gatton Blue Light, to be used for setting up Bluelight and running projects.

The donation came in time for the kick off of the first event for 2011 with a new DJ.

Gatton Police Constable, Peter Grieger, said the money was a huge boost for Blue Light.

“It's great for us to boost our resources, so we can be bigger and better and reach out to kids who are further out than just the immediate Gatton area,” he said.

“We are also looking at funding for mentoring programmes for kids who have been affected by the floods.”

Campbell Page, a not for profit organisation, recently donated more than $18,000 to Gatton Blue Light Association.

Gatton Hub Manager, Melissa Gleeson, said Campbell Page was keen to assist in the recovery program after the floods.

"We allocated these funds specifically to aid in the mental recovery of our local youth." she said.

"Campbell Page hopes that these funds will assist Gatton Blue Light Association with the ongoing mentoring of those affected by the devastating events of 2011."
