Premier Coal and Coal Freight Lines have teamed up to help Collie’s PCYC and Aboriginal development group Ngalang Boodja.

Premier Coal donated a total of 21 computer monitors, four printers and about $3,500 in printer toner and parts no longer required by the coal miner. Collie Freight Lines helped relocate the larger printers from Premier’s mine site offices to the community groups’ headquarters in town.

Collie PCYC manager Linda Gallagher thanked Premier Coal for the donation, saying the equipment would be used to run new programs planned for 2017.

Ngalang Boodja Council manager Narelle Carroll also thanked Premier Coal, saying the equipment would also help the group run numerous programs and offer support to the broader community.

Premier Coal General Manager Glenn Burlinson said the Company was proud to support both groups and to be a welcomed and valued member of the Collie community.

Mr Burlinson reminded not-for-profit groups with worthy local projects that they could apply for similar in-kind or cash support from Premier Coal through its new Community Support Program.

Grants of up to $5,000 are available via the program, which will run twice in 2017. Applications for the first round close on 28 February. More information is available via Premier’s website at
