A plastic climbing pyramid has been installed thanks to a $950 grant from Warrnambool Mazda-Subaru’s community engagement project.

Plastic footholds, nets and ropes are attached to the pyramid to make climbing easier and it is surrounded by soft-fall material.

The grant is the first from a $10,000 grant pool that the car dealership will distribute to community projects this year.

Florence Collins co-ordinator Sharon McKean said the new equipment had been met with great excitement by children at the centre.

“They love it,” Ms McKean said. Warrnambool Mazda-Subaru marketing manager Ally Marsh said the organisation hoped this year’s commitment of $10,000 to local projects would be the first of many.

Applications for the 2015 round of grants from Warrnambool Mazda-Subaru are now open. For more information on applying, visit www.warrnamboolmazda.com.au/mazda_au/company_extra.asp
