The Holden Home Ground Advantage program pledges support for local athletic teams across the country, and the brand has announced the major winner from the second round of the program.
The Tilligerry Districts Little Athletics Centre in Mallabulla, NSW collected a check for $100,000 AUD, from Holden. The club says the grant of money will be used to transform and renovate the clubrooms, which serve as an important community and social hub.
“The program is for clubs like this,” said Holden Managing Director, Mark Bernhard. “Clubs that are in desperate need of funding for facilities. It’s really hard in local communities around Australia to get funding, and this is a chance for us to give something back.”
“Local sporting clubs play a really important role within their communities and we are thrilled to help invest in their futures,” he added.
In 2014, Holden committed to $5 million AUD over 10 years to support local athletic clubs across communities. Twice a year, $250,000 of grants is awarded, with one major grant going to a project worth up to $100,000 in value.
