Nuthall based Hawk Elite Taekwondo Club has received welcome support from Notttingamshire County Councillor Philip Owen, who has presented a cheque for £350 from his Divisional Fund which helps local groups and organisations.
Instructor and fighting coach Michelle Priestley, who runs classes on Thursdays from 4pm to 5pm at the Temple Centre, said: “We have more than 40 members aged from 5 to 18 and it is imperative that our equipment meets the required standard.
“Coun Owen’s funding will go towards vital needs such as body armour, head guards and shin guards.”
Hawk Elite is affiliated to the WTF (World Taekwondo Federation) and operates as a full contact Olympic style sport.
