5 January: Community events get Council funding  Printer Friendly


An international demonstration cricket match for people with an intellectual disability and a rural community Christmas celebration were the recipients of funds in December under the Council’s Community Sponsorship Program.

The Benalla and District Cricket Association received $500 towards hosting an international cricket demonstration match through AUSRAPID, an organisation that increases sporting and recreation opportunities for Australians with an intellectual disability. The match will be held at the Benalla Showgrounds on Sunday 15 March 2015, and will also involve local teams.

The Goorambat and District Public Hall Committee of Management also received $300 towards the annual Christmas Community BBQ held on 12 December. The community BBQ provided an opportunity for results from the recent State Government funded Local People Making Local Solutions project survey to be explained to those in attendance.

The Community Sponsorship Program distributes grants of up to $500 on a monthly basis, allowing local clubs, groups and organisations the opportunity to seek funds when the need arises.

The Program enables local community groups, clubs and organisations to seek funding to increase their capacity to work in partnership with Benalla Rural City Council and others to address local needs and enhance the local community.

“The Council was very pleased to support these worthy applications,” said Mayor Cr Justin King. “They are very different events but they both serve the purpose of bringing people together to improve community connectedness and quality of life. These are things that the Council sees as very important, and providing a big return on a modest investment.”
