The Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association were successfully granted funds from KWT to fit out a cafe at their Community Centre, and are already using the chairs and tables to catch the tourist trade, while they plan for future renovations.
Anne Jenkins, the Manager of HICSA said the community is wasting no time making the equipment available for community use;
"We use the equipment regularly at our other programs, events and meetings. Community members love having cuppa chinos, hot choc and the like made for them by our Tourism students as they wait to access services or attend meetings and events. Most recent one being our Gambling Awareness Week event that we held on the 11th of October. Tables and chairs are also used on the deck (now that the weather is much nicer) for community while they wait to access the Tucker Bag program on a Friday. "
