Sports club enjoy funding
LOCAL sporting clubs in the community will enjoy upgraded equipment thanks to the latest $500 handout from the Community Sporting Club Equipment Subsidy Scheme.
With the latest round of the scheme, 123 regional clubs received $61,500 and 111 metropolitan clubs received $55,000.
Belmont MLA Glenys Godfrey said all local sporting clubs were entitled to the subsidy and she encouraged them to apply for the next round in March.
“The more equipment clubs have, the more people participate in sport,” Mrs Godfrey said.
“This means there are more opportunities for people to get active and enjoy the benefits of being involved in local sport.”
Clubs receiving the latest grant included the Belmont Little Athletics Centre, Victoria Park Belmont Baseball Club, Belmont Cricket Club, Ascot Eagles Junior Cricket Club, Belmont Districts Football Club, Carlisle Rivervale Little Athletics Club and Belmont Junior Football Club.
