Amanda Bridge of Regional Development Australia Whyalla and Eyre Peninsula introduced BP to the Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation. A meeting was set up in 2013 and discussions took place with Foundation Chairperson Glenn Karutz, Secretary Kate Clark and Coordinator Faye Davis and BP representatives Paul Evans and Maria Soares.  The Foundation was asked to identify community projects in the region which would benefit from BP’s community investment program, with the Foundation managing the funds on behalf of BP. Since then BP and Statoil have contributed funds annually to the EPCF’s community grant rounds, along with annual allocations of “Fuel for Volunteers”. The most recent allocations of fuel vouchers were:
