As a result of the NSW Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development “Stronger Communities Program” which provides grants of up to $20,000 to local not-for-profit organisations, Bankstown District Football Association has received six defibrillators for local football venues.
There is now a defibrillator at each of the venues where the Bankstown Sports Strikers are based. They are Bass Hill RSL, Greenacre Eagles, East Bankstown, North Bankstown and Yagoona Lions. Bankstown Basketball Stadium, in Condell Park, and the Western District Joggers and Harriers also received the equipment.
Round one Grant allocations will triple the number of defibrillators at Bankstown sporting fields, making this just the start of ensuring all grounds have a defibrillator.
