2024 Mayoral Prayer Breakfast proceeds aid Safer Toowoomba Regional Partnerships’ Community Connect events (2)

Safer Toowoomba Regional Partnerships Inc. (STRP), a regional charity, today (June 14, 2024) received a welcome funding boost from the proceeds of this year’s Toowoomba Mayoral Prayer Breakfast that was held at Rumours in May.

Toowoomba Region Mayor Geoff McDonald presented a cheque for $8728.30 to STRP Crime Prevention and Community Safety Focus Group members Lindsay Hornery, Kaye Lindsay and Jamie Deacon.

Mayor McDonald praised the group’s work, in particular the recent Community Connect initiative that was devised by the Focus Group to encourage residents to meet their neighbours and forge stronger community ties.

“An inaugural Wilsonton Heights Community Connect event saw residents mingling casually and meeting with community support agencies,” Mayor McDonald said.

“The events are organised to break down barriers, overcome loneliness and promote wellbeing across our communities. It is a simple idea that hopes to have many positive benefits across different neighbourhoods.

“I thank everyone who attended the Mayoral Prayer Breakfast for contributing to this year’s fundraising.
