Four Campbelltown sport clubs are celebrating after securing grants worth $50,000.
Campbelltown Harlequins Rugby Club will use their $7,000 grant for coaching/first aid courses for volunteers and will also buy new uniforms for juniors.
East Campbelltown Eagles Junior Rugby League FC will buy Indigenous round jerseys and build a sun shelter with their $25,000 grant.
The Campbelltown Caspers Baseball Club will spend their $13,000 grant on spectator seating.
The fourth, Campbelltown Cobras Soccer Club, will buy new uniforms with their $5,000 grant.
Campbelltown MP Greg Warren announced the grants yesterday.
The grants are provided by the NSW Government under the Local Sport Grant Program, which allows not-for-profit clubs to apply for small cash grants for a range of purposes.
Applications were assessed by a panel consisting of Campbelltown City Councillors Darcy Lound and Karen Hunt, as well as a member of Mr Warren’s staff.
Mr Warren said he was delighted to be able to support the clubs in their application, and he looked forward to seeing the difference they would make.
“Whatever your sport of choice is, local sporting clubs are an integral part of our community and I’m honoured to be able to support our local clubs with this program,’’ the local MP said.
“The program allocated us a maximum amount of $50,000 for Campbelltown, and it’s great to see every last cent of that being invested into clubs in our region.
“Congratulations to all of the clubs who were successful in securing a grant under the program, and to those clubs that were unsuccessful or that didn’t apply, I strongly encourage them to do so next year.”
