Big boost for Kingaroy Sporting Club
THE KINGAROY Sporting Club has received a $34,689 Gambling Community Benefit Grant to fund upgrades to its facility.
Nanango MP Deb Frecklington handed over the cheque to the club and was excited to hear about their plans for improvement.
"It's great to see the reinvigoration of the Kingaroy Sporting Club and this funding will certainly help improve its facilities,” she said.
"The committee will be using the funding to remove asbestos material, and to carry out electrical and plumbing works.
"These works will help the club grow and provide better access to the many different activities which take place at the Club including boxing, martial arts, general fitness and line dancing.”
Mrs Frecklington believes this grant is a great opportunity for other local groups.
"This is a great example of a group identifying how a grant can help grow their Club. I encourage all local groups, however big or small, to consider applying for a Gambling Community Benefit Fund Grant to help achieve their goals,” she said.
