Longford footballer Isaac Chugg has 250 reasons to smile as he gets ready to travel to Western Australia later this week. The town’s rotary club has given him $250 to reduce the costs associated with playing in the National Schoolboys Carnival.
"It's an honor to be selected to represent Tassie in the carnival in Perth, but it's an expensive trip," Isaac said.
"I'm very grateful to Longford Rotary for giving me a helping hand."
Isaac has been training more than five times a week to prepare.
Club president, Kathy Farr, said one of rotary’s main roles was to support promising young local athletes.
"When young people demonstrate their commitment to achieve, our club will always do its best to help them," she said.
