Great Peninsula Paddle raises vital funds for disadvantaged youth in Hastings
I was delighted that my first event as Minister for Sport was participating in the Reclink Great Peninsula Paddle at Sorrento Sailing Couta Boat Club on Australia Day.

Reclink is a fantastic organisation and the $5,600 raised through this year’s Peninsula Paddle will support the re-establishment of the Western Port Warriors Football Team, which assists disadvantaged youth in the Hastings and Somerville areas to participate and enjoy the benefits of sport.

This builds on the success of the Peninsula Paddle in previous years and has helped raise awareness in the community for the work Reclink does.

Reclink will also auction off a motorised scooter, with all proceeds going towards the Western Port Warriors. Local businesses are also invited to get behind this worthy cause and support the re-establishment of the Warriors.

Reclink Australia provides evidence-based sport and art programs to disadvantaged Australians to create socially inclusive, life-changing opportunities.

I would like to thank all of the volunteers and participants who took part in the Great Peninsula Paddle. I look forward to seeing you all again next year.
