Five West Coast sports clubs are $200.00 better off today thanks to the generosity of Michelle Griffin at West Side Surf and Street, Greymouth.

Griffin who owns the popular retail outlet on Mackay Street is a big supporter of shopping local and felt a cash giveaway would help lift the spirits locally post Covid.

"We always like to encourage people to shop local and I wanted to give something back to the community for their support, as a thank you," she said.

Michelle posted on their social media Facebook page on June 11 asking for people to mention their favourite club that would like a small donation. The feedback was huge with nominations streaming in from all over the West Coast.

The winners have been drawn this morning and will be announced on their page today. You can check out their Facebook (HERE)
