The Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes, today congratulated sporting clubs in the Benalla Electorate which have been successful in gaining funding from the 2007 VicHealth Active Clubs Grants Program.

Dr Sykes said the program aimed to identify a need within the community to fund new equipment or training required to allow the team/group to start an activity. This could be the only barrier to participation and sometimes is a one-off cost.

“This year there were approximately 740 applications received from sporting clubs across Victoria, and the VicHealth program will provide $799,172 in grants this year to 420 sporting clubs and community organisations.

“It is pleasing to see that twelve sporting clubs in the Benalla Electorate were successful.

Benalla & District Bowls Club $2500
Benalla & District Horse Driving $2300
Benalla & District Polocrosse $2345
1st Benalla Scout Group $1350
Bonnie Doon Community Group $2400
Euroa Cycling Club $1366
Euroa Lawn Tennis Club $2200
King Valley United Football & Netball Club $2500
Mount Beauty Soccer Club $1900
Scouts Association Tilba Tilba $1720
Violet Town Bowls Club $ 768
Violet Town Football & Netball Club $2500

Dr Sykes concluded, “I congratulate these clubs on their applications for funding and I encourage all sporting organisations to watch the VicHealth website for further funding opportunities”.
