Jindera Netball Club is set for a significant lighting upgrade after receiving a major sporting grant.
The Bulldogs were presented $22,000 this week through a funding initiative offered by Holden.
As part of the submission, the club had the option of producing a video to help its cause.
A spin-off of the AC/DC classic Thunderstruck was enough to get the grant over the line for the Hume League outfit.
Jindera president Jess Guy was delighted to find out the news.
“We saw it advertised and knew we had to get our lights fixed because we’ve had a few issues with them, so we thought we’d give it a go,” she said.
“They told us the video topped it off for us, which was handy.
“It will pretty much all go towards lights, we’ve had a few quotes and that’s what they come in around.
“When we had our courts re-done, the footballers upgraded their lights and we got their old lights, so there’s a bit of wear and tear.
“We’re lucky with summer and daylight savings that we don’t really use the lights, but coming into winter with training, we definitely need them.”
Guy said the club will be in contact with the electricians to get the work started as soon as possible.
Jindera will be looking to stay in the top-three with victory at Osborne this weekend.
Meanwhile, a further $12,000 was awarded to the Albury Wodonga Munyaas Aboriginal Sporting Club as part of the same grant program.
