Funding from Lancashire County Council August 2014

Sporting Challenge have been awarded funding from some of the West Lancashire division of Lancashire County Councillors from the Lancashire County Council Local Member Grant Scheme.

Sporting Challenge is made up of parents and carers who have been providing sporting activities for around 40 people with learning difficulties in West Lancashire since 2008 by organising evening and weekend activities which are a great way for their service users to have fun, make friends and lead an active lifestyle whist providing valuable respite for their parents/carers.

Edward McCarthy Sporting Challenge Trustee and Secretary said “This is a fantastic opportunity for adults with additional needs in West Lancashire and will help us continue funding the acrivities we do. It gives credit to all our hard work to once again receive funding from this scheme.

Sporting Challenge Chairman John Haggart also said  “ I am delighted with the support we received from this scheme.”

Currently we have received £1100 in total from-

  • Cllr David Westley (Conservative) – West Lancashire East.
  • Cllr Terry Aldridge (Labour) – Skelmersdale Central.
  • Cllr C Dereli (Labour) – West Lancs West.
  • Cllr Julie Gibson (Labour) – Skelmersdale West.
  • Cllr N Hennessy (Labour) – Ormskirk West.
