Apex Club of Keith's disabled swing project has received a large amount of financial support from the Keith and Districts Community Bank branch.

The branch donated $5000 to the club's brilliant initiative, which will result in the installation of a disabled swing in Keith's Don Moseley Park.

The club is the last of five recipients which have received funds from the Keith and Districts Community Grant program this year.

A total of $25,000 in community grants has been donated to Tatiara community groups this year to coincide with the 5th birthday of the branch, which was celebrated earlier in the year.

Apex Club of Keith member Sam Densley said the club was "very grateful" for the generous donation towards their project.

He mentioned how the park is incredibly popular for people who travel on the highway and the donation will allow for the park to be more inclusive.

"With so many people stopping at the park, it will be great to offer additional facilities for adults and children with disabilities." Mr Densley said.

One of the park's major drawcards is its well-known 'monorail ride', which attracts families from across the state and is as a great stop over location for people travelling on the Dukes and Riddoch Highway.

Members of the Apex Club of Keith have put in countless hours of hard work to raise funds for the project, which has resulted in them also contributing a large sum to the initiative.

"We will be contributing $10,000 of our own funds to the project which has been raised by members through jobs such as fencing, catering, building and painting," Mr Densley said.

Mr Densley also said: "Our members donate their time not only to raise money, but also to projects where funds are short but needs are great."

The Apex Club of Keith disabled swing project will benefit many families who currently stop in Keith and will potentially attract others to the town and district.

The success of the project won't just be measured by feedback, it will also be measured with smiles on the faces of people with disabilities.

Keith and Districts Community Bank branch manager Fiona Wilkinson said the bank was incredibly proud to fund community projects.

"We are proud to help give local communities small improvements, that make a massive difference," Mrs Wilkinson said.
