Little A’s fund boost

Glasshouse District Little Athletics centre has been given a funding boost ahead of the 2023/24 season thanks to the latest round of grants from the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund.
The Little Athletics centre based at Skippy Park, Landsborough will now receive more than $1,100 to buy a modified athletics kit including practice discuses, foam javelins and a jumping mat to support its aspiring young athletes.
Glasshouse District was one of just forty successful national recipients announced recently, with this year’s grants taking the total contribution of the Coles Little Athletics Community Fund to more than $2.4 million over the last five years.
Glasshouse District Little Athletics Manager, Danielle Gibbons, said she was thrilled with the support, and said the Coles grant will help the club to purchase modified equipment to benefit athletes of all abilities.
“We will use the grant to purchase much needed modified equipment for our committee members and volunteers to incorporate into our Friday night program. This will be particularly beneficial for our junior athletes, giving them more opportunities for training,” she said.
