FIFTY shades of teal are out for an indoor bowls club that yesterday received funding for new uniforms.

The Wodonga Indoor Bowls Club was one of 12 recipients of Wodonga Council’s latest funding for community groups, festivals and events.

“We are thankful for money to buy uniforms for our 48 members,” president Norma Walsh said.

“We have always just bought shirts around town and have always been dressed in 50 shades of teal.”

The club has already ordered shirts with a uniform shop, thanks to the $1500 grant.

The Warriors Dragon Boat Club, formed in 2012, also received $1500 for first aid and defibrillator training.

President Brendan Maher said the club had just finished its season and a team of 28 would fly to China in two weeks time to compete in the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival.

He said the grant was timely because the club had bought a defibrillator and members needed training.

Other groups receiving grants were: Albury-Wodonga Regional FoodShare, Wodonga Girl Guides, Wod- onga Heart Football Club, Wodonga Midgets Auskick Centre and Twin City Wanderers Football Club.

Events and festivals to receive cash were Border BMX for the Vic vs NSW BMX Open, Wodonga Golf Club for spring tournament, Funny Guys for the Albury-Wodonga Comedy Festival, Border Districts Showjumping Club and Rotary Wodonga Central for the Wodonga Senior Citizens Christmas Luncheon.
