MURRAY PLAINS SPORTS CLUBS RECEIVE FUNDING
Fifteen sporting clubs in the Murray Plains electorate have shared in funding from round one of
VicHealth’s Active Club Grants program.
Nationals Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh said the grants of up to $3 000 aim to overcome
barriers to participation in physical activity.
“Often local sport and active recreation organisations which have identified a need within their
community for a new team or activity find it difficult to acquire funding for the essential equipment
or training required to allow the group to start the activity “ he said.
