THANK YOU, Coles!!

The Tuggeranong Tornadoes was among the 316 centres across Australia to share in over $1.1 million in sports equipment grants from Coles.

We received $3900 grant to purchase new electronic multi-timers, electronic starting guns, high jump stands, discuses, shot puts, turbo javelins, vortex, measuring tapes, numbered marking flags and dome markers.

The new much needed equipment from Coles will help us to provide our members with the best possible Little Athletics experience.

The electronic starting guns are much safer for our volunteers and encourage a larger number of parents and carers to get involved with race-starting.

Coles State General Manager Emma Bridges said Coles was delighted to provide grants to help the Little Athletics centres in Canberra and the ACT.

โ€œThanks to our customers who have bought our range of chiller bags at Coles stores, we have provided more than $35,000 in sports equipment grants to Little Athletics centres across the ACT to help kids lead happier, healthier lives.โ€

โ€œColes is delighted to help the Little Athletics Centres in Canberra to buy equipment such as hurdles, electronic starting guns, discuses and shot puts because we know these are an essential part of Little Athletics to support young budding athletes and parent volunteersโ€ she said.

In addition to the chiller bags, Coles sells Community Bags which help to raise funds for SecondBite, Guide Dogs Australia and Clean Up Australia. All Community Bags were designed by school children as part of a bag design competition.
