Whether you are a past member, current player or new inductee you are always welcome to join family at Newport.
Value to the Community
The individual benefits of taking part in sport and physical activity are well known and well evidenced, and this is certainly true for women and girls. Throughout the life course fewer women and girls than men and boys take part in enough sport and exercise to keep them healthy. The cost of participating in sports, lack of childcare, lack of role models, body image issues and concerns about cultural appropriateness can all exacerbate women’s lower levels of participation. NLLC provides a nurturing environment perfect for ALL women to participate in sport regardless of their circumstances.
Why the funds are needed
NLLC often gets invited to events to enable promotion of our sport and of our club. These are predominantly local community events such as school fetes and festivals. At the moment the club doesn't have any promotional items to advertise our club. We also voluntarily run lacrosse sporting clinics through local primary schools. We would like to use this grant to purchase the following: Outdoor Retractable Banner Stand $374 2 Tear Drop Flags $324 2 Water Filled Bases $110 Postage $51 TOTAL $859 These items will not only be used for external promotion but will also be able to be used at our game days both at home and away.
Include any websites, Facebook or Twitter account if appropriate.
