Member for Bathurst Paul Toole has knocked them out at the Bathurst PCYC after announcing the club would receive a NSW Government grant of $9520.
A great advocate and supporter of what the PCYC does for the local community, Mr Toole said he was pleased the club would receiving the Community Building Partnership funding.
“The Bathurst PCYC will use the support from the government to put down new rubber matting gym flooring as well as replacing the worn out ropes on the boxing ring, along with new corner pads and skirting,” he said.
“David Hitchick and his team do a great job and are proud to run one of the largest school holiday sports programs in the state, which helps keep children active during the break.
“The club has Bathurst’s best gymnastics facility as well as an Olympic standard boxing ring which is great for training.
“There’s also a range of other sporting activities for all the family, including a purpose built Parkour and obstacle course.”
Mr Toole said grants from the Community Building Partnership Fund aim to deliver much-needed improvements to local facilities such as the PCYC.
