Warrnambool City Council’s after-school program will have new equipment following a $1200 grant from Telstra.

New sporting equipment, games, art supplies and toys will benefit children taking part in the Outside School Hours Care program.

It is one of 625 community programs to receive money in Telstra’s $750,000 Kids Fund this year.

South-west area general manager Bill Mundy said Telstra was proud to support local community groups.

Grant recipients are nominated by Telstra employees whose children in their immediate family are actively involved with the community organisation.
