The heart of homegrown talent, Tamworth Physical Culture Club, has taken out this month’s public vote for Greater Bank’s #GreaterNewEngland community funding program.
Tamworth Physical Culture Club has empowered girls and women of the Tamworth community for the past 40 years through the joy of dance and the power of belonging.
As a not-for-profit organisation, the continued success of the dancesport in the region relies on a team of dedicated volunteers. The $3,000 grant is a welcome relief for the club and will help cover overheads and equipment costs whilst keeping registration fees to a minimum for members.
The runners-up for October were Gunnedah-based community groups, Gunnedah Blackjack Camera Club and Gunnedah Conservatorium, each of whom will receive $1000.
Greater Bank’s Regional Manager, Jennifer Smith, continues to be impressed by the calibre of community groups nominated for the #GreaterNewEngland program and the services they offer to communities across the region.
“Tamworth Physical Culture does an exceptional job of providing an encouraging atmosphere and space for young girls and women to get active, dance and keep fit,” said Mrs Smith.
“Not only does the club facilitate skills-based training in the sport of dance and movement, but they also actively give back to the community by fundraising each year for Pink Ribbon and performing at local events.
“It’s also great to see the funding for this month spread across Tamworth and Gunnedah, a town that has always had a strong presence in the #GreaterNewEngland program. As a customer-owned bank, we are so proud to be able to provide this ongoing support to the communities that support us” | Jennifer Smith, Regional Manager
