The cricket club is one of 24 recipients who received funding in the latest round of the program, with $3,750 going towards the purchase of playing and training uniforms.
The Albury Cricket Club has been a fixture of the border region for 15 years and has seen hundreds of players come through its ranks.
Cameron Walker, President of the Albury Cricket Club, said:
‘Support like this is massive for us, particularly at the end of the season because it allows us to purchase new uniforms in time for the start of next season.
‘We’d like to thank ARTC Inland Rail for their support of our cricket club, we just couldn’t survive without the help of organisations like ARTC’.
Stephen Jones, Inland Rail Director of Health, Safety and Environment, said:
‘We are proud to give back to the regions that are home to Inland Rail. The work these organisations do is instrumental to the wellbeing of local communities.
‘I encourage other non-profit groups to lodge their applications for the next round of funding’.
The Inland Rail Community Sponsorships and Donations program offers funding between $1,000 – $4,000 for organisations in eligible regional areas. The funding supports organisations that contribute to local and regional prosperity, wellbeing, and sustainability.
The latest round of funding takes overall support for local communities and associations along the Inland Rail alignment to over $1 million since the program launched in 2019.
Applications for the next round of funding close on 30 April 2023.
We encourage you to check your funding eligibility and apply. Please include as much information as you can to tell the story of what you want to achieve and how it will benefit your community.
