It has been confirmed that York Sport will receive a £2,500 grant from the York Annual Fund for a pre-season training camp.
The plans, as revealed in the last edition of Nouse, will give sports clubs the opportunity to build up fitness and be properly prepared for their opening BUCS fixtures.
A £4,000 grant to buy a new coxless pairs rowing boat to be used by the University Boat Club has also been approved.
Sam Asfanhani, York Sport President, said he was very happy the money had been granted as the “rowing club has done remarkable things.”
Finally, £1,750 from the York Annual Fund, which has been raised by York alumni, is to be spent on installing a piece of Olympic legacy art for the Heslington East campus.
