Collyweston wins 3rd gold with Lottery funding
14th August 2012
We've won a National Lottery grant of almost £8,000 from Awards For All. It's for tables and chairs, the creation of this website, and computer equipment which will benefit other village groups too.
Treasurer Jo Hemingway says: "It's much easier now for teams to keep in touch with players and to publish results. We can promote matches and fundraising events better.”
Chairman Shelagh Busby adds: "Everyone has worked really hard for the past few years, organising fundraising events which brought in a lot of money. But sometimes you need grant funding as well, to push a big project further along."
Mrs Hemingway added: "Once all this new equipment and the website are up and running, our final big push will be to build a sports club building. We've already got planning permission - now we just need to get the money together!"
