We love hearing about all the amazing community projects so many dedicated people are working tirelessly to get off the ground, and we love selecting deserving recipients of the $50,000 quarterly Community Grant, not mention handing over the giant cheques! BUT, without a doubt, what we love the absolute most is going out to visit our past grant recipients to share in their excitement as they show off their community project.
Recently, we joined the Wyndham Track and Field Club in their evening training session, out at Victoria University in Werribee. We checked out the brand new high jump mat purchased with their Community Grant received at the end of 2015. This state of the art new equipment is encouraging for the young club, who are focused on promoting athletics and healthy lifestyles within their western community. Needless to say, Shane Crawford did try to take on the club’s high jump record, and we are still not sure if he actually went over or crawled under the bar, but it was all in good fun! Check out the smiles on the kids’ faces as they challenge Shane in running, jumping, walking, whatever they could get away with!
The current cycle for Community Grants is open for applications until December 31, read more.
