TCLC wins CUA Community Care Grant

24/11/2011
​Credit Union Australia (CUA) has partnered with the Adidas School Fun Run Program for the last four years, helping to provide funding for school projects to promote a healthy lifestyle. In 2011, CUA invited selected schools participating in the fun run program to apply for a $5000 grant for a project promoting a healthy lifestyle. Local school communities had to vote online for their preferred project with more than 75000 votes being placed nationally for a range of school based initiatives.
 
As a result the efforts of the local community, TCLC won the Townsville Branch area competition with a staggering 9000+ votes for our project. On Monday we were presented with a $5000.00 from Mr Wayne Giese, Regional Manager, Qld Country CUA and Mario Patane, Townsville Branch Manager, CUA.
 
There to celebrate with us was Mayor of Townsville, Cr Les Tyrell, State Member for Townsville, Mandy Johnstone and Matt Bowen, star fullback from the North Qld Cowboys.
 
The students got to meet Matt Bowen who came with his partner Rudie and daughter Diaz.  The students enjoyed getting signatures and even got to play a game of basketball with the fullback.
 
The $5000 will be spent on rubber floor mats and new equipment for our gross motor room.
