A sports club for young people with additional physical and learning needs has been awarded a grant from Wakefield District Housing.
The Mulberry Club, at Havercroft and Ryhill Sports and Leisure Centre, was given nearly £700 to cover the costs of polo shirt uniforms for their members.
They were visited by WDH representatives for an official presentation on Monday, with members showing off their new kit embroidered with the Mulberry Club and WDH logos.
Gail Tombs, club co-ordinator, said: “Our club does not receive any statutory funding so we are incredibly grateful for Wakefield District Housing’s generous grant of £693 that has enabled us to purchase a logoed polo shirt for each of our young members, coaches and volunteers to wear.”
The Mulberry Club was founded in January 2008, an initiative of the Outwood Grange College Sports Partnership.
It gives children with additional physical and learning needs the chance to take part in a variety of sports activities, improve their mobility and socialise.
The club at Mulberry Avenue runs every Monday evening during term time.
The junior group for seven to 11-year-olds runs from 6pm to 7pm and the senior club for 12 to 18-year-olds runs between 7pm and 8pm.
