Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined Peter Foster, President and Alan Harding, Vice President of the Emu Plains Junior Rugby League Football Club to announce a grant of $10,000.
Formed in 1967, Emu Plains JRLFC now has over 30 teams ranging from the Under 6’s (including players as young as 4 yrs old) through to A grade.
The Club recently had a setback when its canteen/storage area was broken into at Leonay Oval and supplies and equipment were stolen.
Stuart Ayres said I am pleased to be able to assist the Emu Plains JRLFC with this funding so that they can replace stock, supplies and purchase some new equipment for the club.
Mr Foster said “On behalf of all our club members and volunteers, I would like to thank Stuart Ayres and the Premier for this funding that will help our canteen get back on track which in turn supports our players with its proceeds.”
All funds raised from sales at the canteen go back to the club for ground line marking, trophies, jackets, presentations days, fund raising events to contribute towards new amenities and new concrete paths.
