Sport England award grant to Hoof Club CIC
In 2017 Our Hoof Club CIC (Community Interest Company), secured £68,000 of National Lottery funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.
The money was used to convert a dilapidated milking parlor into classroom facilities which we use to increase participation in equine sport.
The large untapped demand for equine training has been evidenced via local Councillors, special needs school advisers and the local community. The initiative also gained support from our local MP partly due to the planned increase in employment that this facility has generated.
