Seven local sporting clubs from across the Keira electorate have been awarded a funding boost under the Local Sport Grant Program.
All up close to $50,000 has been granted to clubs that rely on the hard work and dedication of volunteers to keep operating.
Amongst the successful applicants was Figtree Junior Soccer Club who has been able to secure $12,000 for a new roof to their clubhouse and soccer coach development.
This large soccer club sees hundreds of local kids enjoying sport and learning important team building skills.
I would like to congratulate all those involved with the successful local sporting clubs and I look forward to continuing to work with local sporting groups to help them get the much needed funding they deserve.
