Sporting clubs and community groups in Karratha have been given a helping hand with Woodside donating thousands of dollars to organisations in the region.

Woodside awarded 14 grants of up to $5000 each to support a range of projects, from cyclone repair and recovery, the purchase of new sporting equipment, and the development of new community activities.

One of the recipients, Yirramagardu Community Association, plan to use the funding to buy outdoor furniture for Val and Kath’s Crafty Kitchen.

Meanwhile, Karratha District Junior Soccer Association members, pictured, will use their money to support the establishment of a soccer academy for girls to promote female participation in the sport.

Other recipients of the grants include Nickol Hawks Cricket, Ngaarda Media, King Bay Game Fishing Club and Karratha Community House.

Woodside Karratha Corporate Affairs Manager Kate Gauntlett said sporting clubs and not-for-profit groups played a vital role in maintaining the health and wellbeing of the local community.

“We are really pleased to be able to support the ongoing development of these organisations and their important role in our community through the Woodside community grants.”
