Federal Member for Bendigo, Lisa Chesters is proud to announce that the Kyneton Football Netball Club will receive a $13 636 grant from the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Programme.
The money will go towards refurbishing the kitchen in the pavilion, including the upgrade of cabinetry, sink and tapware, the purchase of a deep fryer, and waterproofed flooring.
“The refurbishment will not only benefit KFNC in terms of revenue and service to members and the public, but will also be a considerable benefit to all Kyneton Showground users, their members, and the general public supporting their events.” Chesters said.
“Kyneton FNC does a great job in creating a sense of belonging and social inclusion, and building a stronger local community. They’re an extremely worthy recipient of a Stronger Communities grant.
“I commend the hard work of the Kyneton Football Netball club on their excellent and innovative application, they’ve come a long way over the past 12 months.” Chesters said.
The Kyneton FNC is one of 12 Central Victorian organisations who have received a total of $150,000.
Kyneton FNC President, Karen O’Sullivan says being successful with this grant application is a great way to kick start the year for the Tigers.
“A new canteen will put smiles on the faces of many volunteers and canteen co-ordinators.”
“An upgraded kitchen will be a much welcome addition to the KFNC social clubrooms, one that can be used widely by other community groups as well to help us all maximise our fundraising opportunities.” O’Sullivan said.
“The Kyneton FNC is extremely grateful to Lisa Chesters MP for the funds that will be used to upgrade the Club’s kitchen and canteen.”
Chesters said the project will improve local community participation, cohesion and contribute to Central Victoria’s vibrant community life.
“The Stronger Communities programme is an exciting opportunity for our invaluable community organisations offering support to regional infrastructure, programs and events” said Chesters.
