Border Raiders win Vic Health grant

By Brayden May

MOAMA Echuca Border Raiders have been handed another boost after receiving an Active Club Grant.

The club will receive $2978 which will help with introducing a new female team and encouraging training and skill clinics at schools to generate new participants for junior teams.

“This funding will make it even easier for local residents to get active and reconnect with others in their community while keeping safe from coronavirus,” Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp said.

“Local clubs and associations play an important role in our community. I’m encouraging residents across Murray Plains to support their local club and give sport a go.

“We know sports clubs are the heart and soul of their communities and we’ve heard from so many Victorians who’ve really missed playing the sport they love and seeing their teammates.

“Playing sport is great for our physical and mental health. Joining a sports club is also a great way to get involved with your community, have fun and make new friends.”

Meanwhile, Cohuna Golf Bowls Club has received a grant of $2000 of its own.

The club is introducing a weekly social evening competition to increase the participation of juniors and women through an entry-level program to develop their confidence and skills in bowling.
