GRANTS have been handed to 12 young local athletes to help them take part in competitions.
The successful applicants for the Dunkley Local Sporting Champions grant program will receive between $500 and $700. The funding will go towards travel, accommodation, uniforms, or equipment.
Dunkley MP Peta Murphy said “with all eyes on the Tokyo Olympic games, it’s a terrific time to recognise some of our upcoming local sporting talent.”
“This round was particularly competitive, so I’d like to congratulate the successful applicants. Dunkley has a rich and varied sporting history and it’s great to see so many different sports represented including basketball, athletics, gymnastics, baseball and others,” she said.
