Last week Member for Orange Phil Donato MP, announced funding for the Cudal Amateur Swimming Club through the 2019/2020 Local Sporting Grant Program.
The Swimming Club gratefully received funding of $3,000 to go towards the purchase of an Infinity Start System, a waterproof clock and pool equipment for the Ruby Whalan Memorial Pool.
Club Secretary Tina Hough said that the new Infinity Start System is a much-needed upgrade that will be a benefit to both the club members and the timekeepers.
“The new system is much better as it has a built in light that automatically flashes as the horn sounds,” Tina Hough explained.
“This provides greater inclusiveness for the community and club members, and also means timekeepers are looking as well as listening, which makes timekeeping more efficient.”
Phil Donato said he was very pleased to have supported the Club’s application for this funding, which benefits the local community.
“It’s great to be able to do my part in assisting small sporting clubs, as they offer so much to our community,” Phil said.
“This new equipment will make a big difference to this wonderful club, I’m proud to have supported the funding application for this project,” Phil Donato said.
With Cabonne pool season opening this weekend it is great for the Cudal club.
