Midland White City Amateur Boxing Club has been presented with a cheque for £4,850 towards their work in the Tigers Bay area of north Belfast.

The presentation was made by Joanne Byrne, grants officer of the Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland to Corey Stewart, when she visited the organisation recently.

Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland awards between £1.5million and £2m annually in support of the Northern Ireland community to enable people, especially disadvantaged or people with special needs, to play a fuller role in their community.

Ms Byrne said: “The Lloyds TSB Foundation for Northern Ireland is delighted to be able to support the work of the Midland White City A.B.C. The money will be used towards much needed boxing and fitness equipment. We wish the organisation continuing success with their excellent work with young people in the community.”
