Thanks to the kindness, ongoing support and generous funding from the Iwasaki Foundation, the Biloela Community Arts House has improved accessibility and a new disability-friendly bathroom.
Last year the Iwasaki Foundation provided the Arts House committee with a grant for cement pathways that link up the house and the shed on the grounds. This year they fully funded the rebuilding of the old bathroom in the Arts House to make it accessible for people with a disability.
The Iwasaki Foundation’s charter is to promote, foster, assist, encourage and sponsor the welfare of aged, infirm, disabled or needy persons. This is done through the funding of Charitable Grants and Tertiary Education Bursaries.
The Biloela Community Arts House committee’s Treasurer, Ros Pearce, said the committee was so grateful for the generosity shown by the foundation. “It has been very encouraging the support they have given us,” she said.
Desley Rial, OAM, her husband Bert and her daughter Denise, who are part of the Iwasaki Foundation, recently paid a visited to the Arts House to see the new bathroom facilities and meet the committee.
