Good causes

Salford Harriers Junior Running Club

Salford harriers running club was established in 1884 but never had a junior section until 2012. We now have over 120 children ranging in age from under 11 to under 20. The junior section train and race all year in different disciplines. Athletics in summer, road relays in autumn and cross country in the winter months. We are looking for funding to buy a portable shelter to keep the competitors out of the weather whilst waiting for their races to start. In the cross country season it is always cold wet and an all day event. Having a shelter, umbrellas and hot drink provision would be of great benefit to the club and help maintain the well being of the competitors and spectators who regularly travel to support the club.

The whole ethos of the lead coach, Duncan Mason, is to provide the club with a fitness plan for life and not for short term gain. We have had talks from GB athletes and nutrition experts to teach the importance of a healthy lifestyle. We recently sent four athletes to the English Schools championship in Birmingham to represent Greater Manchester one of whom won the senior girls gold medal.

We would like to buy a branded Salford Harriers juniors portable shelter /gazebo that can be taken to races and quickly erected to keep the competitors out of the British weather prior to their races. And a large pump flask to provide a hot drink after the race. Also a number of branded Salford Harriers umbrellas for supporters and competitors to use whilst supporting our young athletes.

Friends of Boothsbank

Working with Evolve Manchester and Salford Community Leisure, and to keep children engaged over the summer whilst building confidence, fitness and motor skills, we would like to put on activities over the summer holidays for local young people on Boothsbank Park.

The activities would be an eight week programme involving Parkour, this will give the young people a fun and alternative way of exercising and excelling. Sessions to include jumping, landing, vaulting and movement skills.

Worsley Village Community Association

We are a group of local volunteers helping to provide leisure activities and events for the local community to improve their health and well being. Our good name also attracts people very often from further afield.

Funding would be used to help pay for the Father Christmas event held in December for children and families. Father Christmas arrives in Worsley being carried on a narrow boat and alights to enter his Grotto to meet the children waiting to see him. There is a flotilla of decorated boats, it is free event and each child sees and speaks to Father Christmas individually. The children are given a free drink and cake.
