Kandos Rylstone Little Athletics Centre's wish to purchase more sporting equipment has recently been granted by supermarket giant, Coles.
The centre is one of over 200 Australia wide to receive funding, with a $2,300 grant awarded as part of Coles Community Chiller Bags.
Kandos Rylstone Little Athletics' secretary, Debbie Reid says the grant will allow the centre to continue to provide quality learning to participants.
"The Coles grant will have a huge impact on our centre. We are one of the only two sports in this town that do not include weekly travel to another town to compete or train in," she said.
"The new equipment from Coles will allow us to grow Little Athletics so that we are able to promote fitness and life skills in our local children, as well as involvement for the parents."
Coles State General Manager Emma Bridges says the supermarket was more than happy to assist with funding.
"The Kandos Rylstone Little Athletics Centre told us they would like to receive a grant for Tiny Tots and high jump equipment as well as measuring wheel and tapes, and we were delighted to help because we know these are an essential part of Little Athletics to support young budding athletes," she said.
