JOONDALUP Little Athletics Centre has received $5000 to buy new sports gear.

The HBF Arena-based club is one of 100 across Australia to receive a grant from Coles to support local little athletes in achieving their track and field goals.

The $360,000 total funding was raised by Coles shoppers who bought a community chiller bag designed by Aussie kids, with the supermarket directing 25 cents from every sale to the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund.

The Joondalup club said it would use the funds to buy a high jump mat.
