Hockey trio benefit from Cultural and Sports Trust Fund

Three rising hockey stars have benefited from Clarence Valley Council’s Cultural and Sports Trust Fund, which supports individuals from the Clarence Valley to represent NSW or Australia at cultural or sporting events all year round.

Zayden Third, Thomas Beohm and Oscar Woods each received $300 donations to assist with travel, accommodation and other associated costs of representing NSW at the 2022 Hockey Australia Under-13 Boys Championships (28 Sept 04 Oct) currently underway in Hobart.

The requests for assistance were approved unanimously by councillors at the Ordinary Council Meeting on 26 September.

“Congratulations to our local athletes that have been selected to represent New South Wales in hockey,” Cr Steve Pickering said. “It’s a huge achievement for anyone to be elevated to represent at that level.

“We need to make this opportunity more visible to the community because there were people who weren’t aware that if they do represent New South Wales or Australia in sport then we do have this sort of scholarship available to them.”

The Trust provides financial support, in any calendar year, to a maximum of $300 for individuals to attend one event at National level and $550 per individual for one event at International level.

In 2022/2023 a total of $5,000 has been reserved for the Sport ad Cultural Trust Fund.
