New equipment a boost for junior club

The club is one of 625 community non-profit organisations across Australia to receive a grant from the fund this year.

Telstra countrywide area Perth south general manager Nicola Swarbrick said the grants were widely recognised for making a genuine difference to local organisations supporting children.

‘Over the past 11 years, Telstra’s Kids Fund has provided $8.3 million to help more than 7000 local organisations across Australia better support, educate and encourage children,’ she said. Previous grant recipients include schools, art and culture groups, sport and recreational clubs, disability services and environmental organisations.
