“Skin cancer is one of the most prevalent, yet largely preventable cancers affecting Victorians – that’s why it’s so important to be sun smart,” Member for Northern Victoria Mark Gepp said.

THREE local community groups have received funding through the State Government’s Community Shade Grant Program (CSGP).

The Kyabram Lawn Tennis Club received $8365, the Kyabram Vintage and Machinery Restoration Group received $5000 and Kyvalley Tennis Club received $14,396.

The CSGP is aimed at assisting organisations to purchase and install shade sails or plant shady trees, be sun smart and prevent skin cancer, while also embracing the outdoors and enjoying a more active and healthy lifestyle.
