Community Grant for Kensington PCYC

Published: May 14, 2018 12:00am
Kensington Police and Community Youth Centre (PCYC) has received a $10,000 grant as part of the Commonwealth Bank Community Grants program. The grant will contribute to the restoration of the outdoor basketball courts at the centre, and the delivery of youth activities such as boxing. Upgraded facilities will allow local youth the opportunity to get involved in activities and competitions, both during the day and in the afternoons, contributing to mutual policing outcomes to engage youth and steer them away from crime. “The courts have been neglected for years and the grant will help to upgrade at least one or two courts for now” Daniel Naidoo, Kensington PCYC Centre Support Manager said. “This would get our youth involved in activities and competitions, keeping them off the streets and out of crime” he concluded. Additional funding is required to complete the refurbished outdoor basketball courts at Kensington PCYC, so if you would like to support the centre please contact Centre Manager Amanda Dow on (08) 9367 1282.
