Wheelcheer Sports WA Association to get upgrades after receiving grant

WHEELCHAIR Sports WA Association will have an upgraded information technology system and business development initiatives after it received a grant this week.

At a presentation at Mirrabooka’s Herb Graham Recreation Centre, $209,617 was awarded by Lotterywest to develop the association’s business development and sustainability.

Disability Services Minister Donna Faragher said the association had also moved into non-sporting areas including business development, social inclusion, education and recreation.

Wheelchair Sports WA Association was established in 1989 and has more than 580 members involved sports including basketball, rugby, athletics and tennis.
