Kealy congratulates 2021 VicHealth funding grant recipients - Northern

The Nationals Member for Lowan, Emma Kealy has congratulated the Kalkee Football and Netball Club and the Horsham Calisthenics College who have both been successful in receiving funding under the second round of the VicHealth Reimagining Health Grants program.

Ms Kealy said one of the key focuses of this round of funding was to provide funding support to clubs and residents hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

“This much-needed funding from VicHealth will ensure local organisations can continue supporting our community to build back better from the impact of coronavirus,” she said.

“Grassroots organisations are the heart and soul of our local communities and their efforts are key to helping us recover from this pandemic.”

The Kalkee Football and Netball Club will use their $8,000 grant to provide Back Together Again free night meals for families and community members to encourage social gatherings around a hot meal without the need to worry about food costs.

The Horsham Calisthenics College will use their $1,300 to purchase more equipment for members (aged 3 to 19 years) so they are better equipped to engage in calisthenics. They are also looking to increase their membership after the loss of members due to COVID-19.

“Community organisations play a vital role, now more than ever, in helping people connect and take care of their wellbeing and it is critical that we continue to open up avenues for more people to get involved in sport,” Ms Kealy said.

“I congratulate and offer my full support to both these organisations for their initiatives to achieve this.”
