G’day

A VISIT to the Bridgewater PCYC this month was one of the better days of my life as your Federal Lyons MP.

2015 04 13 kids with PCYC gearI took great pleasure in handing over a large quantity of football gear to the PCYC for its new footy-in-schools program in the area.

There were nine big boxes containing 140 pairs of football boots as well as jumpers and footballs which we successfully sourced with the help of Human Services Minister Marise Payne and business sponsorship.

Bridgewater PCYC assistant club manager Andrew Dean has organised football clinics at Gagebrook, East Derwent, Herdsmen’s Cove and St Pauls Primary Schools to be followed up by a mini football roster as a way to get local children into sport.

We’ve since been liaising with other organisations to help the PCYC source other sports equipment needs.

They do a great job,

Eric
