Recently Koonwarra/Leongatha RSL Cricket Club purchased new cricket equipment packs, our coaches completed Level 1 Coaching course and also purchased cricket uniforms and caps for our Under 12s, 14s and 16s teams thanks to a $4800 Telstra Kids Fund grant.
Our club is very excited to share in the million dollars the Telstra Foundation provides each year to help connect kids to their local communities.
In purchasing this equipment we hope to encourage kids from the area to come and play cricket, even if they don’t have or can’t afford their own equipment. These packs are fully stocked with all that a child requires to play this great game.
At the heart of every Telstra Kids Grant is a Telstra employee who nominates a local community activity they value. Our sincere thanks go to Telstra’s Andrew Clark and Gavin Hardy, who applied for this donation on our behalf.
Telstra Kids funds the little things that can make a big difference to children’s lives, helping kids to play and learn a great sport.
Since 2002, the Telstra Kids Fund has contributed millions of dollars to thousands of community projects for kids.
