Money for grassroots cricket

Casino District Junior Cricket Association was recently awarded a grant as part of the Commonwealth Bank’s inaugural Grants for Grassroots Cricket program.

The local cricket club is one of 200 clubs receiving the grant, which includes $1000 cash and $750 worth of equipment including a shade marquee, two market umbrellas, 200 water bottles and 50 field markers.

The cash will be used to purchase equipment for players to use at training and equipment to make viewing more comfortable for patrons.

“We are proud that we can support the club in this way,” Commonwealth Bank Casino branch manager Tracey Baynham said. “Cricket is popular in the area and the grant will provide great assistance to ensure local cricketers have the opportunity to continue to play the sport they love.”
