The President of the Bancroft Curling Club says a grant from the provincial government has helped the organization immensely.
Ron Hale has said that a $50,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation has allowed the Club to continue on through the pandemic. With the help of the grant, they have continued to operate, helped the club reopen, and helped offset health and IT costs.
Hale says the grant also helped pay for ice installation and utility costs so they could reopen in the fall of 2021. He said the grant has given the club “new life”.
