£50,000 from Inspired Facilities Fund

IFgoodjpgMundesley Youth and Community are thrilled to secure Olympic Legacy funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund!

The group’s long term vision to develop a Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) that could be used by the whole community for a wide range of activities has taken another step closer following the news.

Jackie Thornton MYC Volunteer Fundraiser explains “the success of all the MYC projects so far has been down to the community spirit, volunteers and our local resident’s willingness to accept that different people in our community have different needs that should be supported. We are so pleased to receive this grant and we are now just £15,000 short of gaining the total £123,000 to build the new facility.

She added “Throughout we have tried to talk to as many people as possible, finding out what they need and then trying to find the funding or fundraised to make it happen. It’s not always easy and takes a lot of hard work from the committee. However it’s so rewarding to see so many visitors and locals using the facilities, it all helps to make our village a better place to live and visit”.

By developing the new MUGA the group aim to work in partnership to help more people get involved in sport and keep them participating in a range of sports whilst increasing people’s health and cohesion within the local community. The MUGA will provide opportunities for Tennis, Football, Netball, Basketball and other community events and activities and will be managed by Mundesley Youth and Community in partnership with Mundesley Parish Council.
