The Singleton Roosters AFL club is one of eight junior sporting communities set to benefit from over $27,500 in funding from Glencore’s latest round of Junior Sports Development Program (JSDP) grants.
The club has received $5,300 for marquees ahead of the 2020 season.
“We want to make our kids’ sporting experience safe and comfortable to encourage them to participate for as long as possible,” Singleton Roosters senior vice president Joel Deacon explained.
“The Glencore grant will help make this a reality for us.”
The Singleton PCYC also benefited with $3,530 granted towards a coach and Instructor Accreditation while the Singleton Pony Club received $3,860 for portable yards.
“The latest round of grants takes JSDP funding for Hunter clubs over the past two years to more than $262,000, in which time we’ve been able to assist clubs to provide opportunities to more than 1200 young people across regional NSW to become involved or stay involved in sport,” Glencore’s Community Relations Manager Craig Studwick added.
Other organisations to benefit this round include the Denman Sandy Hollow Junior Rugby League Club, Kurri Kurri Netball Association and the Hunter Schools Mountain Bike Event.
