Hal­berg Trust has fund­ing for sports

Central Leader - - News -

The Hal­berg Trust is of­fer­ing to help fund the sport­ing dreams of dis­abled youngsters.

Applications can be made to help dis­abled youth take part in phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties or to ac­cess equip­ment.

Fund­ing cov­ers costs over and above what it would cost for an able­bod­ied child to par­tic­i­pate, so some con­tri­bu­tion from the fam­ily is usu­ally re­quired.

Applications can be put for­ward on be­half of chil­dren 18 and un­der with a dis­abil­ity.

The min­i­mum age for swim­ming lessons is five years old, while for all other applications it is eight.

The max­i­mum grant for equip­ment is $1500, with two grants avail­able in a life­time.

The max­i­mum grant for lessons is $200 once a year.

Fund­ing de­ci­sions are made by a com­mit­tee on a monthly ba­sis.

For in­for­ma­tion phone Stacey Roche on 269-0184 or email staceyr@cm­sport.co.nz or visit www.hal­berg. co.nz.
