Local Sport Grant Program

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, I have said it time and time again, but grassroots sport is truly one of the cornerstones of my community. I am so privileged that my local area is home for so many great sporting organisations. Today, I would like to congratulate a number of these organisations who have recently received funding under the Local Sport Grant Program. These organisations operate to the highest calibre and I could not be more proud of their efforts. I would like to specifically congratulate Phillip Brown from Football St George, Matthew Ellis from Georges River District Cricket Club, Richard Rice from Georges River Rugby, Lisa Da Silva from Connells Point Rovers FC and Jason Finlay from St Jospeh's Riverwood Sports Club. As these individuals are incredibly dedicated, taking time to promote the health and wellbeing of our younger members of the community. All in all, these organisations received just under a combined $50,000 worth of funding, which will make an enormous difference. I would like to congratulate all of the grant recipients and look forward to working alongside them well into the future.
