While plenty of West Aussies have hit the Lotto jackpot, Lotterywest’s impact on the broader Western Australian community is where you’ll find the real winners.

Thanks to you playing Lotterywest games each week, Lotterywest grants are helping the people of our State via hundreds of different grants, to the tune of $351.5 million in the last financial year alone!

We’ve been diving into a number of these grants through our Dream State series, and this week we’re looking at Mundaring Adult Creative & Learning Centre (MACLC) formerly known as Mundaring Sharing.

Perched up in the picturesque Perth hills for the past 40 years, the MACLC has provided space for over 400 people ages 18 and above to meet, share knowledge and learn new skills, in the process developing a vital sense of community in a relaxed environment.

Starting new hobbies, finishing projects and making friends in classes largely run by volunteers at a low cost, a Lotterywest grant of $109,545 has been pivotal in upgrades for the centre.

These include a woodwork studio, art studio, yoga and meditation, plus a pottery shed with kiln!

Classes on offer range from wood working and oil painting to language, upholstery and more, with over 25 options per week, with the centre also home to a second-hand bookstore and op shop.
