Funding promise for All Stars Club

A MAJORITY Labor Government will provide $10,000 to local out-of-school activities group, All Stars Club.

All Stars Club founder and coordinator Alison Stone said the funding would help the club offer programs to local children, while also building on its culture of trust, mutual respect and genuine engagement.

She said Labor’s support would ensure the club continued to offer programs including swimming, martial arts, performing arts and roller derby, both after school and in school holidays.

“We are seeing a real flow on effect from the kids among families through increased social networks, from parents starting training with their child and families supporting each other,” she said.

Member for Denison Scott Bacon said the grant would ensure the All Stars Club could continue its good work supporting children in the Glenorchy municipality.

“The All Stars Club does amazing work in our community and Labor is proud to offer our support,” Mr Bacon said.

“Alison Stone and the army of supporters, volunteers and families involved should be very proud of their achievements to date, with the program going from strength to strength.”

Ms Stone praised the generosity of the people involved in running programs and supporting the club.

“It’s great that people are willing to support us while we try to create a supportive and vibrant community,” she said.

“It so encouraging that people genuinely want to create opportunities for people who may not have opportunities and provide access to things they don’t have access to.”
