STATE Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin has congratulated three Lismore-based sporting clubs on sharing in an extra $16,486 made available under the NSW Government’s 2020-21 Local Sport Grant Program.
“Under this program’s guidelines, remaining funds from undersubscribed electorates in New South Wales were made available to oversubscribed electorates, of which Lismore was one,” Ms Saffin said.
“This came as a welcome surprise, so it’s a real bonus that three local sporting clubs will benefit this year from this additional funding.”
Successful applicants, as approved by the Office of Sport, are:
- Lismore Basketball Association Incorporated – Purchase of club singlets and basketballs, $5,000.
- Lismore Target Pistol Club Incorporated – Upgrade of lighting of the indoor air pistol and rifle range, $7,267.
- Northern United Rugby League Football Club – Provision of a Koori Knockout training program and installation of seating at Clifford Park, $4,219.
