Pirates all a board
THE girls at Piara Waters Junior Football Club can now look up during a match to check the scoreboard - hopefully to see how much their team is leading by.
The club scored a $1000 grant this year from Stockland’s Sienna Wood community and put the money towards the new transportable device and some weather-sheltering gazebos.
“We previously didn’t have a scoreboard available for their games and we’ve definitely seen that the teams have liked having their scores displayed during matches,” club president Amy Dimitrijevich said.
“The funding from Stockland was also used to purchase gazebos to keep the players dry or out of the sun between games and so that the parents can watch from the sidelines.”
Stockland awarded $276,000 in grants this year to 266 local groups, clubs and programs across Australia that support health, wellbeing, community connection, education or local environmental initiatives.
