Seahorses get lucky with an AAMI grant

WOOLGOOLGA Junior Rugby League Club has had a lucky break, announced as a 2015 AAMI Lucky Fund winner.

Seahorses events and fundraising co-ordinator Mel Decent said the $1250 grant meant a lot to the small club.

"We will put the funds to good use to purchase a new set of tackling bags, as most of our existing bags are damaged, torn and are falling apart," she said.

The fund is open to any senior or junior club playing in Country Rugby League for 20 weeks.

"Our intention is to assist clubs with funding to purchase much-needed equipment and upgrade facilities," CRL regional administrator Peter Wilson said.

"At the end of each week, one nomination will be selected to receive a grant and that can mean a lot to a local club."

The AAMI Lucky Fund is designed to support affiliated clubs that have been affected by flood, fire, vandalism, financial difficulties and other circumstances.

Further details and online nomination form are on the CRLNSW website.
