Do­na­tion will help ju­nior cricket play­ers shine

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS - By RAY READ

THE Euroa Cricket Club has re­ceived an im­por­tant in­cen­tive boost for its un­der 12, 14 and 16 sides thanks to a do­na­tion of $600 from the Aus­tralian Na­tional Show and Shine com­mit­tee.

This financial in­cen­tive to in­crease or hold mem­ber­ship of this grass­roots club will ease the bur­den of fees for these lo­cal kids whose in­ter­est in sport is crit­i­cal to their ad­vance­ment over the com­ing years.

The do­na­tion in­cludes an amount of $200 to al­low for the pur­chase of cricket gear which may as­sist new mem­bers, or help to kit out the team.

This is just one of sev­eral lo­cal projects that will be funded from the prof­its of the Show and Shine’s suc­cess­ful event last year.

SHOW AND SHINE BOOST TO JU­NIOR CRICKET: Seen hand­ing over a cheque to the cricket club are Show and Shine rep­re­sen­ta­tives Jenny Jones, Sa­mara Thomp­son (pre­sent­ing the cheque), Shannon McWil­liam and the brave lone lad among the ladies, Glenn MacDon­ald. Rep­re­sent­ing the Euroa Cricket club are Lynda Sand­ford, Heather Crosby and Kir­rily McCombe.
