Member for Mulgrave Curtis Pitt has assisted the Innisfail Combined Sporting Clubs by donating $1,000 to purchase paint for the repainting of the exterior of the clubhouse.

Mr Pitt said he was happy to provide financial assistance to Innisfail Combined Sports which is home to a number of sporting groups.

“The venue is home to junior and senior cricket, Tigers Soccer Club, Cowboys Junior Rugby League and Vikings Rugby Union juniors and seniors,” Mr Pitt said.

“I know all these clubs are busy fundraising for the teams so providing the paint for the clubhouse is one thing they no longer need to worry about.”

“The committee secured $4,630 to purchase a dishwasher, stackable chairs and an ice machine, Mr Pitt said.

“St Rita’s School at Babinda was also successful in the same round of funding securing $3,589 to be used to construct a play area and garden.

“Caring for our Community Grants are available to community and volunteer groups to help buy essential equipment for their services.

“Groups can apply for grants of up to $5,000 for equipment such as computers, whitegoods and barbeques and up to $15,000 for more essential equipment.”
