Canterbury finalist in club awards

Posted on Friday, 13 March 2015

Two Canterbury League Club community projects have been chosen as finalists in this year’s ClubsNSW Clubs & Community Awards.

The Awards pay tribute to the valuable contribution NSW clubs make to their local area and community.

Both of Canterbury’s projects have been recognised in the Social and Welfare Inclusion category; the first one is the Club’s work helping animals through the RSPCA, and the other in support of Schizophrenia Fellowship of NSW’s ‘Thriving, Not Surviving – Mental Health Fitness’ program which encourages routine physical exercise for people with mental health disabilities to elevate their symptoms and increase their confidence.

“We are thrilled that two of our community projects have been recognised as Finalists in the Clubs & Community Awards. Canterbury has always been a proud supporter of our local community, committing more than $1.2 million each year on top of our sizeable contribution to the Bulldogs,” said Dave Brace, CEO of Canterbury League Club.

Canterbury is also in the running to win ClubsNSW People’s Choice competition. To vote for Canterbury as your favourite local club and for your chance to win a $10,000 holiday to Hamilton Island, click here
