Amber Valley and Erewash Athletic Club need your votes

Last year the Amber Valley and Erewash Athletic Club entered the Persimmon Homes Healthy Communities competition and so far they have won £5,750 for kit to help them train their athletes.

The Club train local children from the age of 8 in Track and Field and they have over 380 members and 25 coaches. With a 19 year history behind them, they are beginning to see athletes representing Great Britain, England and Scotland across a number of disciplines.

A few days ago they received exciting news that they have been chosen as the ONLY sports club in DERBYSHIRE to progress to the national final. The prize is £200, 000 which would be a phenomenal boost to a club like Amber Valley and Erewash Athletic Club. Two further runner up prizes are also available, of £50,000 each. To win one of these prizes, all they need is to encourage supporters of their work to vote for them.

If they win they would work alongside the council to provide better facilities for the athletes and volunteers.

The process is simple, and will mean so much to the athletes and the volunteers at the Club.
