Errigal Boxing Club, near Coleraine, has been awarded a £2000 grant from sported., one of the UK’s leading Olympic legacy charities, to continue to provide diversionary activities to support local young people and build a strong community.

Paddy Bradley, Chairperson of the Errigal Boxing Club, said: “The funding will help us to buy new and better equipment for the club which will be a great boost to the morale of the young people we work with and hopefully encourage more young people to get involved.”

The group has received funding from sported.’s small grant programme, which enables sported. Members with a turnover of less than £50,000 to access funding to support sport for development projects working with young people aged 11-25.
