WIMMERA football and netball groups were among the recipients at the 2017 Horsham Sports and Community Club grants day on Sunday. 

More than 100 Wimmera sports and community groups received donations totaling $127,500. 

The club has contributed $1.8 million to Wimmera sports and community groups since 1992.

Club manager Glenn Carroll said the opportunity to support the region’s groups was fantastic. 

“Every group receiving an award today have a purpose unique to them and it is great to help them achieve that goal,” he said.    

Ten sporting clubs received $17,000 in total this year. 

Mr Carroll said sport was the heart and soul of the community. 

Both the Horsham and District and Wimmera football leagues were awarded $2500 each to contribute to interleague costs. 

Nine Wimmera fire brigades received $9817 in grants. 

Mr Carroll said Wimmera fire brigades were awarded $101,476 over 25 years as part of the Horsham Sports and Community Club sponsorship program.

He said it was great to help community service groups in the region.

“For us to service community groups who then use the funding to help our community is rewarding,” he said. 

Mr Carroll said the club received 120 applications for grants this year.
