Search for young Pendle athletes

First published in Pendle

PENDLE Leisure Trust is looking for young, talented athletes who could qualify for support with training and competition costs.

If you know someone aged between 12 and 18, who lives in Pendle and has represented the county in their sport, they may be eligible for help with training or possibly a grant.

Clive Escreet, Pendle Leisure Trust’s sports development manager, said: “This scheme recognises the importance of supporting Pendle’s young people in achieving their sporting goal. Through the creation of the Talented Athletes Fund, young sportsmen and women will be helped and encouraged to compete in regional, national and even international competitions.”

The scheme offers free, unlimited use of Pendle’s swimming pools, fitness rooms, athletics track and exercises classes, as a means of assisting with training programmes.

An application pack can be obtained from Louise Cooper at Colne Town Hall, on 01282 661236. All applications must be returned to the town hall by February 15.
