Following a funding application submitted by our coaching team the club was yesterday awarded £6,000 by The Sir James Knott Trust.
The Sir James Knott Trust is an independent, grant making charitable trust based in Newcastle upon Tyne. They support community projects in Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and County Durham including Hartlepool. The aim of the Trust is to help improve the conditions of people living and working in the North East of England.
Our application was for support to help the club replace some of the older boats in our fleet, which are approaching end of service.
We will update in due course to advise how we plan to spend the funds, but it’s great we may have some newer boats to look forward to using.
And thanks goes to everyone involved in getting this award.
