COMMUNITY TAB as a long-time supporter of WA sport looks to extend this commitment further by providing metropolitan and regional sporting clubs a valuable $4000 GRANT to assist in providing the resources necessary to ensure local community sport continues and thrives.
The CARLISLE FOOTBALL CLUB has applied for this grant to assist in the upgrading of the aging facilities where outdated clay pipes cause constant blockages and flooding also intermittent loss of hot water on game days and training has an ill effect on members morale and performance.
The club seeks to use money from the grant to extend the medical area so volunteers who give their time have the space and facilities needed to provide the care our members need.
The Carlisle FC committee is grateful to work with a socially responsible organisation such as TAB COMMUNITY to give back to the WA sporting community and nurture the next wave of talent and assist the volunteers who support them.
