Clairvaux Football Club (FC) has been successful in receiving funding from Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP through the Volunteer Grants program. The funding will be used to purchase new equipment for the club’s volunteers.
On Saturday Mr Vasta attended Clairvaux FC, at Clairvaux Mackillop College, to catch-up with members and find out how the new equipment will help the club.
“It’s been great to work with Clairvaux FC and deliver federal funding which will be used to purchase new fridges for their canteen,” Mr Vasta said.
“Canteens sales at sporting events are a vital source of income and allow the club to reinvest into their players and the community.”
Clairvaux FC Coach and Treasurer Robbie McLean said the funding allows the club to regain an important income stream.
“We are very thankful for the funding that Ross has secured for us, and it will make a massive difference to the club,” Mr McLean said.
“Without fridges to keep food and drinks cold and fresh, we lose the ability to raise money through canteen sales, which means we have less money to reinvest into the club,
“Purchasing new fridges will also mean we can have cold drinks ready for players after games.”
Mr Vasta is proud to support the Clairvaux FC, which last year had 400 players, and provide this Federal funding to benefit the Clairvaux FC sporting community.
