PostSubject: Phoenix receives a Sports Capital Grant!!   Thu 08 Oct 2015, 2:57 pm

Hi All,

Today we received news that Phoenix Kayak Club has been awarded a Sports Capital Grant of €120,000 toward our clubhouse development from the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport.

Minister Ring announces 41m Euro Sports Capital Programme 2015

Allocation of Sports Capital Grant Funding Press Release.

This brilliant news is a vote of confidence in PKC as the centre of kayaking in Munster and recognition of members efforts in community work with our support of charity events and sessions for disadvantaged youth in Cork. Our efforts in competitive events and introducing kayaking to the general public have not gone unnoticed either.

Thank you to those who have made this possible, many people have been involved with grant applications over the years, but Mairi Henderson in particular has spent dozens of hours completing grant applications and meeting engineers, planners etc. We created a political lobbying sub-committee this year and their efforts have paid off, well done to Conor Lehane, George O'Callaghan, Michelle Walsh and Andrew Ring.

Also, thanks to Martin Tarrant who completely re-drew the plans to support this updated application.

We originally applied for €192,000 and whilst the grant leaves us short €70,000 to completely finish the clubhouse project, it means we can now start planning and get the project moving again.

On behalf of the Committee
Paul Heff
Club Secretary

An unbelieveable amount of work has been done on these grant applications behind the scenes over the last several years, great now to have the reward.
