Albury Cricket Club bowled over with Inland Rail donation

All children that join Albury Cricket Club’s juniors will receive a club training shirt thanks to the Inland Rail Community Sponsorship and Donation program. The club prides itself on ensuring all registered players receive a shirt and the grant furthers its commitment to equal opportunity for all junior members.

Albury Cricket Club Captain Ross Dixon said he became aware of the grants during the Inland Rail Conference held in Albury in 2021, and in addition to supporting the community he saw the project as a real opportunity for the town.

“Inland Rail will cement the region’s position as a commercial hub and build capability across regional Australia bringing investment and supporting future infrastructure,” he said.

Wagga Wagga’s Lilier Lodge, a Can Assist facility providing assistance for those undergoing cancer treatments, also received a grant in February 2021 to support its major fundraising event. After being impacted by COVID-19, the organisation finally went ahead with its High Tea on 20 March.

Each year individuals and organisations along the Inland Rail route can apply for a grant between $1000 and $4000 to support short-term or one-off community initiatives, events or activities.

Round one for 2022 is now open and closes on 30 April 2022.
