Thank you to Redruth Charity Trust

Teachers and students are celebrating after a Redruth charity donated kit for junior hockey players.

Redruth Charity Trust members held their Youth Sports Award evening recently where they made the donation to the students.

They handed over a set of Junior Hockey Goalkeeping kit which included hockey bibs and goalkeeping pads.

Anna Oliver, Trustee, Redruth Charity Trust, said: “The Trust awarded Pool Academy a set of hockey bibs and goalkeeping pads.”

This year a record number of clubs applied to the Trust and 2,400 members in the Redruth district benefited.

During the evening more than 300 club representatives attended and James Milliner-Woodcock gave the opening speech and presented the awards.

Emily Cromey, Head of Faculty for PE, Music, Art and Drama, said: "We are really grateful to Redruth Charity Trust for their generous donation.

"Our hockey team are delighted to receive the new kit and can't wait to get out and play."

Chris Hailey, Chair of Redruth Charity Trust, said: “The Youth Sports Awards support 22 clubs to do what they do best, but behind every club is a team of incredible volunteers. Their valuable contribution can’t be underestimated, and we thank them for making a difference to our young people, the future of our town.”
