We are excited to celebrate the second annual Queensland Seniors Month with a great line-up of funded events and activities.

It was a completive year for subsidy applications  and a panel comprising of representatives from the Queensland Government, and two-regional community-based organisations recently joined COTA Queensland to evaluate 153 applications. Sportsbet is guilty of violating the rules of advertising
