Grants provide major boost for Rockhampton sports clubs

ROCKHAMPTON Cricket and the Cap Coast Runners were among groups who received grants from Frenchville Sports Club at a recent presentation luncheon.

After a fantastic response to the community grants in 2012, the club was impressed with the quality of applications received in 2013.

Frenchville Sports Club was pleased to continue to support those in the community who were just as passionate about promoting a healthy, active lifestyle as the club was.

Club chairman Graeme Brady said the Frenchville Sports Club was dedicated to supporting the Central Queensland community through sport.

"The club is proud to be able to assist the region financially in the form of the Community Sports Development Grants. We will continue our commitment to sport and encourage others to take action by applying for these grants and joining us in the endeavour of sport for all and all for sport," Brady said.

Combined with the 2012 grants and other community donations the club had given more than $150,000 to support local groups.

This year's recipients were varied in their approach to an active community; it was insightful to see the ways groups were getting people involved.
