A Coleraine-based basketball club has been awarded funding by Moy Park as part of its ongoing Community Support Fund initiative. The Causeway Giants Wheelchair Basketball Club is benefitting from a total of £2,000 from Moy Park’s Community Support Fund. The funds will be used to help with the cost of training facilities, as well as the purchase of additional materials and equipment to ensure the team members’ wheelchairs are safe and operational whilst training and competing.
The club, which has been operating for over four years received the funding as part of the £1 million Community Support Fund established by Moy Park in 2020 to support organisations local to its operations across Europe.
Speaking about the support, Richard McVicker, Treasurer and Welfare Officer at Causeway Giants Basketball Club:
“We are so appreciative and grateful to receive this funding from Moy Park. The generous grant will help us cover the cost of ongoing training facilities as well as funding additional parts for our players wheelchairs and will help for the overall running of the club, helping those with disabilities get involved and take part in a sport they enjoy.”
