Mingle Mob’s monthly skate park barbecues in South Hedland are set to run for another six months thanks to a $5000 grant from Fortescue Metals Group.
The youth outreach program’s monthly event at the South Hedland skate park provides a free barbecue while allowing youth workers to interact with local young people.
Mingle Mob funding consultant Miranda Bowman said the event was growing monthly and was well-received by the youth of Hedland.
“Mingle Mob would like to thank FMG who came on board as the sponsor for the monthly skate park barbecue for South Hedland youth,” she said.
“The $5000 that FMG have donated for this will ensure Mingle Mob are able to continue running this event over the next six months, supplying free barbecue food and a great night of mingling, entertainment and activity for the youth of South Hedland.”
The next skate park barbecue will be held on March 29.
