Gainsborough based building contractor Horsman Construction announce their first grant allocation from their Foundation which has been awarded to four young Lincolnshire budding sporting potentials.
The Horsman Foundation, which was established at the beginning of the year, was formed in collaboration with the Lincolnshire Community Foundation to assist children and young people with high sporting potential from disadvantaged backgrounds to be able to fulfil their sporting dreams and participate in their chosen sport.
Mark Horsman, Managing Director, said “We were very fortunate, that we could financially support our son James to follow his desire to play tennis in the County , but we recognise many families are unable to support their children’s sporting ambitions.
“We want to be able to give children and young people who excel in a particular sport from disadvantaged backgrounds, the opportunity to succeed and participate at a high level in their chosen sport by awarding grants through The Horsman Foundation” added
Alexandra Kowalczuk, Head of Business Development & Marketing for Horsman Construction.
Cory Goulding (13) and Ebony Jones (15) from Scunthorpe Boxing Club, together with Jenna Dixon (13) and Emilia Roach (15) from Ashby Decoy Golf Club are the 4 hopefuls that have been identified as having true potential in their sporting field.
Sue Fortune, CEO of Lincolnshire Community Foundation said “Staff and Trustees at LCF are grateful to Horsman Construction for working with us to establish this fund to enable some of the county’s up and coming sporting stars to achieve their ambitions and take them to the next level.”
Cory and Ebony’s boxing coach, Ricko Richardson said “This news is fantastic. Cory and Ebony’s dreams of competing at a higher level might now be realised. Thank you”.
Penny Cairns, the ADGC Junior Organiser & Welfare Officer at Ashby Decoy Golf Club said “We pride ourselves on being a supportive and fully inclusive Golf Club and these grants will help two of our talented junior girls achieve their goals.”
