Lakes Entrance’s netballers will play in new, updated uniforms after receiving a VicHealth Active Club Grant, Member for Gippsland East, has announced.
Mr Bull, a former VicHealth board member, said both the local netball association and Lakes Entrance Croquet Club were successful with their recent VicHealth grant applications, receiving $1760 and $1350 respectively.
“While the netballers will purchase new uniforms for the competitions in which they compete, Lakes Entrance Croquet Club will buy three boxes of balls for their matches,” he said.
“My full congratulations go out to all the volunteers who applied for the grants on behalf of the local sporting clubs successful in attaining much-needed funding,” Mr Bull said.
“These clubs are just two of the 358 across Victoria, and 12 across East Gippsland, to share in more than $939,000 to enable more Victorians to get physically active.
“The Active Club Grants make a unique contribution to the Victorian community by improving the health of inactive and somewhat active Victorians whilst also supporting people to continue participation in sport and active recreation. This focus is aligned with VicHealth’s 10-year goal of getting 300,000 Victorians more physically active by 2023.
“I am sure the updated equipment and uniforms these clubs will receive will encourage a higher participation rate and boost the profiles of the clubs,” Mr Bull said.
