Community Grants

Giving Back to the Community is the reason Clubs exist. Despite a difficult year, St Johns Park Bowling Club still managed to contribute over $200,000 to the ClubGRANT’s Program. The projects we support aim to make a positive difference to people’s lives, something we are extremely passionate about. Clubs in NSW provide support to tens of thousands of local community organisations, charities and sporting groups each year through ClubGRANTs. Recipients from the Fairfield area received funding for various projects including welfare and health services, community development, social services and employment assistance. As usual, we have endeavored to assist the local area as much as possible, especially local schools.
