Scarborough Archers are delighted to receive a grant of £1,000 from Sirius Minerals Foundation.

The club applied for a grant to purchase new targets to help with our beginners courses.

Scarborough Archers chairman, John Naylor said: “We’d like to thank the Sirius Minerals Foundation for their support.”

David Archer, chairman of the Sirius Minerals Foundation said: “We received a great deal of interest and enquiries from local sports clubs and societies in previous rounds, and we want to ensure that we meet local demand and needs.

“Amateur sports clubs are an important part of the social fabric of the area – they can make such a positive difference to people, helping them lead healthier, more fulfilled lives.

“The Board was blown away by the volume of high-quality applications for a vast range of sports.

“During the very tough selection process, it sought to achieve a balance across geography and various types of sport as well as the gender and age of participants.”
