AT her last official duty as president of Tameside Rotary Club, Maria Bailey presented a cheque for £1,060 to Mossley Amateur Boxing Club as a contribution towards the purchase of new boxing equipment.
The boxing club recently moved into new premises in Squire Mill, Micklehurst, after being in Ashton for many years.
Maria said the donation, which was made on behalf of all Rotary club’s in Tameside, would enable them to get back into operation as quickly as possible after such a difficult time moving premises and the effects of Covid-19.
Boxing club owner Wayne Heywood thanked Tameside Rotary and all the other Rotary Clubs for their kind donation which has enabled them to purchase new equipment and get back into operation after such a difficult period for the club.
The donation was also possible with the help of a Rotary Foundation Award and other local Rotary clubs in Tameside who also contributed. The Rotary clubs who donated are Hyde, Dukinfield and Stalybridge, Denton and Audenshaw.
