Gold Sponsor Announcement
Melbourne University Lightning is delighted to announce the Clifton Hill / North Fitzroy Community Bank® Branch of the Bendigo Bank as a new Gold level sponsor of the Club.
The Clifton Hill / North Fitzroy Community Bank® will partner with Melbourne University Lightning to deliver a netball engagement program for African-Australian girls living in the City of Yarra. The Club will not only deliver a netball skill development program but also a tertiary education awareness and mentoring program through The University of Melbourne. The Club hopes to breakdown cultural barriers to young African-Australian girls participating in structured sporting programs and to provide exposure to a wide range of tertiary study options.
