NEWS: Eagles sore to Grant Award
Congratulations to two of Ipswich’s long term riders, Daniel Knights and Richard Fellgett, both aged 17, on being awarded a National SportsAid Grant of £500.00 each from SportsAid Eastern whose President is The Right Honourable Sir John Major KG CH whilst their Patron is Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
The SportsAid programme www.sportsaid.org.uk is jointly run by Suffolk Sport, SportsAid Eastern and ‘Rising to the Challenge Suffolk’; its aim is to support Suffolk’s up and coming Sportsmen and Women as they strive to excel in their chosen sports.
Both of the boys were nominated by British Cycling after performances in 2013 competitions although they both had to fill out a CV of their CS achievements and reasons as to why they should be considered for the grant along with their estimated expenditure to compete in the sport.
As part of the Grant conditions they maybe called upon in the future in an Ambassadorial Capacity to help inspire other young people from the county to succeed in their sporting endeavours. A role which we’re sure both would fulfil successfully if asked.
