“This funding will assist the Avenel Bowling Club to introduce two new flexible programs – ‘Bowling with Babies’ for young mums and ‘Girls on the Green’ for women in participate after work hours.
“The Mitchell Ranges Soccer Club have also received $3,000 to introduce two new teams for women and girls, providing more sporting opportunities for females wishing to get active across the Mitchell Shire.
