Pearce MHR Christian Porter handed the funding over to the junior sport stars in January as part of the local sporting champions program.

He said it was important to encourage kids to play sport and help them pursue their talents.

‘Unfortunately, it is often a struggle for families meeting the expense of attending championships,’ he said.

‘These children have shown great dedication to their sports and, having met with them today, I am certain they all have great futures ahead of them.’
