Future Sport North East boosted by ?10,000 donation

As summer approaches, Future Sport North East has been reflecting on recent developments.  In these difficult economic times, the support of businesses, other organisations and individuals in our region is hugely important.  A few months ago, we were delighted to collect a cheque for £10,000 at the annual Northern Echo Local Heroes Awards. 


The Northern Echo is a great champion of grass roots sport and has long been a major supporter of our work, with editor Peter Barron playing an important role as a founder and governor of Future Sport North East.  It was Peter who introduced us to the County Durham Community Foundation, which in turn led to the cheque being presented to our chairman Phil Lewis. 


Future Sport North East is hugely grateful to both organisations for their generosity, which will allow us to continue our work as we offer grants to talented youngsters in our region.
