This grant scheme is designed to satisfy a need in Central Hawkes Bay where young sports people have considerable costs associated with representing Hawkes Bay or at a higher level. There are families that cannot afford those costs.
If you are a sports person in Central Hawkes Bay then travel and other costs are a huge cost element because the competition is usually out of town – Hastings, Napier, Dannevirke and further afield.
The Waipukurau Rotary Club has established a grant scheme to assist with these costs. Details are below.
