Do­na­tion vi­tal to keep Lit­tle As up and run­ning

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

MONTO’S Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club is the ben­e­fi­ciary of a gen­er­ous do­na­tion from the town’s IGA su­per­mar­ket.

Store man­ager Peter Gib­ney said he ap­proached the club as it fit­ted the bill for a do­na­tion un­der the IGA Com­mu­nity Chest pro­gram.

This pro­gram is a fund from the sales of IGA branded prod­ucts to be do­nated to non-profit com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The club was given a cheque for $250, which will be put to use in gen­eral main­te­nance and run­ning costs.

“In most towns and sub­urbs IGA does al­ready spon­sor the club and in­deed has a strong con­nec­tion with Lit­tle Ath­let­ics in gen­eral through spon­sor­ship of ma­jor car­ni­vals,” Mr Gib­ney said.

Club rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mark Mo­scrop was very grate­ful for the sup­port from a lo­cal busi­ness.

“This can be used for things like mark­ing lines on the track and low­er­ing fees,” Mr Mo­scrop said.

Monto Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club has a come and try day on Au­gust 24 and sign-on day Septem­ber 7.
