Clubs urged to apply for $10k grants
Northern WA sporting clubs are on the hunt for additional funding as they vie for $80,000 worth of community sport grants this week.
A total of eight Origin LPG grants, each worth $10,000, will be given to groups from across Australia to celebrate the role of sporting clubs in local communities.
Eligible clubs which draw the public together or work tirelessly behind the scenes are being encouraged to visit originenergy.com.au/sport and describe in 250 words or fewer how they would benefit from one of the grants as part of the program.
Former Australian Rugby League sportsman Darren Lockyer said it was an important opportunity for clubs and he looked forward to seeing the best four applicants feature in an Origin LPG TV commercial about the program.
“Sporting clubs, especially in regional Australia where I grew up, are the lifeblood of local towns,” he said.
“This is a fantastic initiative by Origin LPG to give back to local sporting clubs and the community, and a great way for these clubs to secure additional funds to support our future sporting superstars.”
Applications will be accepted until February 28 and grant winners will be announced in April.
