Ayr Figure Skating Club, in Ayr has been granted £1,000 from The Pavers Foundation through the employee grant application initiative. Lee Callaghan from the Pavers store in Glasgow applied for the funding to support the club that her two young nieces attend.
The donation to Ayr Figure Skating Club assisted in purchasing a much-needed harness to help skaters when developing their jumping skills and when mastering the correct rotations that are needed for competition level.
With over 100 skaters, Ayr Figure Skating Club train from tiny tots learning to skaters who are in the Great Britain Development Squads and represent the club at British championships.
Lee Callaghan, who regularly attends the clubs skate competitions and gala’s to support her nieces said:
“AFSC was delighted to receive a donation for £1000. The club is non profitable and completely parent run. The donation allowed the club to purchase a jump harness, this piece of equipment is much needed to help with the skaters development. The club coaches tots through to British competitors see picture”.
Mandy Simpson AFSC President said:
“I would like to take the opportunity on behalf of the Coaches, Skaters, parents and the committee to thank Pavers Foundation once again for their generosity. The Harness will be of great benefit to all our skaters for years to come”.
The Pavers Foundation is pleased to be able to support the club, and help the development of the fantastic skaters!
Who knows where their talents will take them?
