Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington has congratulated the Kingaroy Sporting Club on receiving a $34,689 Gambling Community Benefit Grant through a recent round of the program.
Mrs Frecklington visited the club recently to meet with members and hear about the planned upgrades.
“It’s great to see the reinvigoration of the Kingaroy Sporting Club and this funding will certainly help improve its facilities,” Mrs Frecklington said.
“The committee will be using the funding to remove asbestos material, and to carry out electrical and plumbing works.
“These works will help the Club grow and provide better access to the many different activities which take place at the club, including boxing, martial arts, general fitness and line dancing.
“This is a great example of a group identifying how a grant can help grow their club.
“I encourage all local groups, however big or small, to consider applying for a Gambling Community Benefit Fund grant to help achieve their goals.”
