When the Eurobodalla region was severely affected by the bushfires earlier this year, the Queanbeyan Leagues Club knew they wanted to help the region recover.
It wasn’t long before the Eurobodalla Shire Council suggested that the “Live Life Get Active” program would be an excellent initiative to support.
Live Life Get Active is a registered health promotion charity that offers FREE outdoor activity camps and wellbeing and nutritional programmes to help address obesity, diabetes and mental health. Their vision is to build fitter, healthier and happier communities right across Australia.
This $10,000 donation to the “Live Life Get Active” program will allow programs to begin in Batemans Bay and Narooma, starting February 2021 and will run throughout the school term.
Live Life Get Active was started by Jane Flemming who is now the Ambassador and works in the Partner Relations team. Jane was a former Olympic track and field athlete.
At a recent event at the new Huawei Raiders Centre in Braddon, ACT, Jeremy Wyatt, General Manager of Queanbeyan Leagues Club was delighted to pass the donation over to Eurobodalla Shire Council Mayor, Liz Innes, who accepted the donation on behalf of Live Life Get Active.
“It’s so important for the Queanbeyan Leagues Club to give back to our region. Our associations with the South Coast are strong and long-standing, with many Canberrans and staff here at the Queanbeyan Leagues Club making their way down to the coast over the summer holidays. We look forward to seeing the locals down there enjoy activities and group sessions that this program will provide them,” Mr Wyatt said.
