Youngsters at a junior football club are riding high on a “wave” of euphoria after the Smile Fund stepped in to buy a new piece of equipment.
Pinchbeck Junior Football Club had applied for £200 to buy a “wave” – which returns balls that are kicked at it.
And the club, which plays at Glen Park in Surfleet, was lucky enough to be chosen from hundreds of applicants to receive a donation.
The application was made by under 11s assistant manager Steve Forster, who said the equipment would help the 60 youngsters involved to improve their skills.
He said: “The children will really enjoy using it and basically it helps improve their ball control and first touch.”
The Round Table has a pot of £10,000 which it hopes to use to support people in the community.
It has teamed up with the Spalding Guardian to allow readers to submit their application – and the great news is that there are really very few limits to who can apply.
Applicants can be individuals, a group of people, a club, an organisation or maybe even a school.
Projects can include anything from a new sports team kit to a day out.
A panel will decide which applications will be backed with a donation of up to £500.
To apply, send a letter including your name, address, beneficiary of the cash, amount requested and the reason for the request to Spalding Guardian Smile Fund, Priory House, The Crescent, Spalding, Lincs, PE11 1AB.
