Our mighty Macksville Club has again proven itself to be the bees knees when it comes to community involvement and support. For the second time, the Macksville Ex-Services Club was shortlisted for the prestigious Clubs NSW ‘Clubs and Community Awards’, which were presented last night in Sydney, with Ben Fordham as host. Macksville Ex-Services Club has a long history of supporting local sport within their local area, providing financial sponsorship to sporting clubs, teams and individual state and national representatives.
The Nambucca Valley has produced well-known identities like Greg Inglis and Phillip Hughes who started their sporting careers in clubs that Macksville Ex-Services sponsor, such as Bowraville Junior Rugby League and the Macksville Ex-Services Junior Cricket Club. Last year, the club provided $26,200 to 18 sporting groups with 2,220 participants which assisted them to purchase new equipment, supply uniforms, maintain their grounds and gear, and implement training and coaching programs to their members. The club also offers their facilities free of charge for sports club AGM and monthly meetings, volunteer training and education, fundraising events, weekly raffles and award and presentation functions. This year, they are deservedly awarded the Winners of the Support of Amateur Sport category.
