Senator Cummins concluded by saying “I will always advocate strongly for sports clubs and organisations because of the positive impact they have on a daily basis. I know this funding will make a huge difference to the work these clubs do on the ground, day in day out with their members and I want to pay tribute to all those who worked so diligently on these applications and I am looking forward to seeing the fantastic projects these clubs have come to fruition.”
