Orbost Bowls Club will soon have new bowls, while members will be aided by the use of bowling arms, thanks to a VicHealth Active Club Grant.
Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, a former member of the VicHealth board, today congratulated the club on its successful application, receiving $2500 for the equipment upgrade.
“My full congratulations go out to all the volunteers who applied for the grants on behalf of the club,” he said.
“Orbost Bowls Club is one 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 will encourage a higher participation rate and boost the profiles of the Orbost Bowls Club,” Mr Bull said.
