Nyora Cricket Club gets a boost
The Nationals Member for Gippsland South, Danny O’Brien has congratulated Nyora Cricket Club on receiving a grant through the VicHealth Active Club Grants program.
Following the success of VicHealths ‘This girl can – Victoria’ campaign, this round of funding will help local sports clubs across Victoria deliver more opportunities for women and girls to get active.
$370,000 in funding has been spread across the state with Nyora Cricket Club receiving a share to invest in a junior girls’ cricket team for the coming season.
The club will receive a grant of $3000 to help the club with uniforms for the new girls team.
Mr O’Brien said grant programs like these go a long way to support our grassroots sporting clubs.
“It’s great to see our local clubs getting extra to help them keep our kids active.
“Sport can get expensive, clubs rely a lot on fundraising in the community and a grant like this one can take a bit of pressure off.”
