Coffs Harbour City Council has made 2 major grants:
$67,500 and $125,000 towards the construction of the shed,
dedication of the site
and assistance with engineering services.
"The Coffs Harbour Men's Shed is built on the hard work of volunteers, and the generous donations and sponsorship of both large and small companies, governments and individuals.
We are especially grateful to the Coffs Harbour Local Council who have continually backed us with major grants and the provision of Professional advice from their staff at all levels.
Without Coffs Harbour Council's help over the years the Coffs Harbour Men's Shed would have struggled to provide the on-going service to it's members and community, and would not be in the enviable position of having one of the largest facilities in Australia. With a 20 year lease we can look forward to a continued service to the community and the people who will benefit the most, our members."
