HOPE: Sports Club wins £49,504


Hope Sports Club, in the Hope Valley, has won an award of £49,504 in the recent round of the Sport England “Inspired Facilities” funding. Together with funding from Derbyshire County Council and local business totalling over £145,000, the award will be used to replace the ageing sports pavilion with an up to date recreation and changing facility that will meet the needs of sports and community groups in the area for the 21st century.
Local MP, Andrew Bingham, said: “I very much welcome this investment by Sport England into Hope Sports Club, which will see sports and community groups enjoying the benefits of new facilities. This money will be a great investment in young people across the Hope Valley, both for today and for the future.”
