Cowdenbeath Club to benefit from £2,875 award to improve equipment.
Following a successful application to the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, Cowdenbeath Martial Arts Centre are gearing up with some new equipment to train their future champions. An award of £2,875 will go toward supplying new punch bags, kick pads, shields and suits for some its younger members, who are mostly aged from 4 to 14. As well as keeping fit and healthy the Club actively promotes all the benefits that karate offers, including self confidence, discipline and a positive attitude.
That the results speak for themselves is demonstrated by a Club members’ recent victory at the World Youth League in Dubai. As Club Chief Instructor Gordon Maxwell pointed out “this award will allow us to seriously upgrade our training aids to develop our members and new members to come. It will significantly improve the training experience for all within our club and is greatly appreciated”. Chair of Scottish Trustees for Coalfield Regeneration Trust Nicky Wilson added “improving opportunities for residents of our former coalfields continues to be our priority and in doing so we are delighted to be able to work with Gordon and his team.”
