Funding Boost For Community Fitness Centre

Event Details





The new EIT Institute of Sport and Health at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Sports Park has been granted $3 million from the Lottery Grants Board.

It comes less than two weeks after Hawke’s Bay Community Fitness Trust chairman Sir Graeme Avery said the institute, a trust project, needed another $7.5m in funding.

He said he was thrilled with the announcement from the Lottery Grants Board.

“On opening, this facility will be only partially complete and in order to deliver on our vision of transformational changes in health and sport throughout the region. There is a lot more work to be done.”
