Equipment. The Circular Head Little Athletics Centre has purchased a new laptop and printer to aid organisers during weekends, thanks to a $1000 sports grant from McDonald’s.

The grant program is part of the global fast-food chain’s long-standing partnership with Little Athletics Tasmania, and was awarded to one centre in the north, north-west and south of the state.

Centre president Colin Wigg was grateful to be able to upgrade resources, describing the new equipment as an essential part of their program in order to enter and maintain records, registrations and rankings.

“We’ve had our old laptop since we started, and it was getting to the end of its lifespan,” he said.

“It’s [the laptop] at the centre of everything we do. The grant has been fantastic for us.”
