Muswellbrook Race Club seeking applications for its 2019 Community Support Program

IN the wake of its outstanding success, Muswellbrook Race Club is once again seeking applications for its Community Support Program in 2019.

The initiative has been very prosperous over the past five years in supplying much-needed funds to local junior organisations.

"Our younger citizens in the Muswellbrook Shire are an integral part of the growth of our community," Muswellbrook Race Club general manager Duane Dowell said.

"And, as such, helping to promote lifestyles that include the ongoing learning and development of the younger demographic is a focus that Muswellbrook Race Club embraces.

"More than $40,000 has been distributed into the local community since the program's inception."

The successful groups from last year included Upper Hunter Community Services (Youth programs), Muswellbrook Junior Touch Football Association (marquee), Early Links Inclusion Support Service (new equipment to assist learning with disabled children) and the Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter Eisteddfod (event support).

"The Community Support Program will be a continued focus for our club going forward," Dowell said.

"After the great response since the program was launched in 2015, I'm delighted that we are able to again offer these grants in 2019 and beyond."

Eligible applicants can download the application form on the Muswellbrook Race Club website, to be submitted by Friday, July 5.
