SWAN Valley Netball Club has received a helping hand from Midland car dealer Goldy Holden.

The small six-team club was presented a ‘home ground advantage grant’ of $5000 by the automotive giant at a training session last week.

President Wendy DeMascio said the much-needed money would go a long way.

“As a club, we wanted to update our uniforms but we had to be mindful of the cost as we understand how costly it is for families when children play sport,” she said.

“With this in mind we started looking for ways we could increase funds to help subsidise the cost of purchasing new uniforms, as well as updating uniforms.

Ms DeMascio said the grant would also go towards training equipment and the end of year windup.

“This is the first time that we have received help from Holden and as the president of the netball club I can not thank them enough,” she said.

“It is not always easy to organise fundraising activities and the generosity of the Holden Company has definitely made my job and all those involved with our club that much easier this year.”
