    2015 Community Funding

    Big congratulations to Tom Ervin who has recently returned from Berlin, Germany where he was competing for Team GB in his discipline of Discus and Shot Putt. Tom returned home with a great achievement of two bronze medals to his name. Here at the centre we are so proud of Tom and his achievements.

    Tom spoke on his success saying: “I am really proud of myself for what I achieved in Berlin. It shows all the hard work is paying off and things can only get better for me”, Tom then went on to say: “I would also like to say a massive thank you to the ‘Maidstone Leisure Trust’ for all their help and support, from simple things like words of encouragement from the Trustees when I see them around the centre, to sponsorship of equipment such as what was a much needed new throwing frame that I have been using in competition, plus much much more that they have done for me”.

    The Maidstone Leisure Trust awarded Tom with £2,805 to part fund a new chair, as well as £458 for winter training and £18 for other equipment.

     
     

    In addition we are pleased to report further demonstration of the Trusts impact in the wider community via the first round of Trust Funding resulted in the following success;

    • Wing Chun Martial Arts Club were awarded £200 for a new advertising banner and equipment.
