HEATHCOTE Community Pool Project Inc has received the proceeds of McIvor Transit’s Fare Go program.
The Fare Go program is a monthly grant which provides support for local community groups. All the groups have to do is fill out an application and a worthy recipient is chosen each month.
Liz Spillane from the HCPP said that the grant has been a huge help for the pool and went towards some new dumbbells, a float belt and kickboards to be used by the 3523 Fitness Centre.
“I would like to encourage the community to make good use of the services offered by McIvor Transit,” Spillane said.
“Also I want to thank Paul Shearman, director of McIvor Transit for the encouragement that he gives to local community groups to access these funds.”
Amber Tavinor from 3523 Fitness said any grants towards wellbeing will be of great benefit to the community.
“Any money put towards fitness and getting the community involved in it is a great thing, so I would like to thank McIvor Transit for their help” Ms Tavinor said.
“It is a great opportunity for our members and the local community to come on down and try out the pool.”
Ms Tavinor also mentioned the opening of the Fitness Centre’s 2018 sponsored community memberships. Applications for the sponsored senior memberships can be emailed to [email protected] before January 28.
Applicants must be aged 55 or over and live locally in the wider Heathcote and Costerfield area, more information can be found on the 3523 Fitness Centre Facebook page.
