North Nottinghamshire athletes receive vital help from joint effort by Mansfield Rotary Club, Mansfield Armchair Club and SportsAid

Thanks to the combined generosity of Mansfield’s Rotary Club and Armchair Club two of North Nottinghamshire’s most talented young athletes received SportsAid Awards of £500 this week to help them meet the cost of training and competing.

Tennis player Freya Christie from Hucknall and volleyball player Ieuan Lamb from Ravenshead both received their awards at a special event  hosted by Mansfield Rotary Club at the Sherwood Forest Golf Club in Mansfield on April 30. The event was also attended by Olympic silver medal winning GB cyclist Bryan Steel, who was himself supported by SportsAid in the early years of his career.
