AN afternoon tea was hosted by Tangney MHR Ben Morton late last month to celebrate local recipients of sporting champions grants.

Mr Morton maintained calls for a fairer distribution of the Federal program’s grants to better meet demand, arguing that Perth sporting champions need access to more grants of higher amounts to better reflect actual costs of travelling interstate.

More than 50 athletes applied for the 22 available grants in the last round in Tangney.
