Guiseley Community Foundation Gets Morrison’s Funding

Guiseley AFC’s Community Foundation is celebrating their successful bid for funding from the Morrison’s Foundation.

The Guiseley Foundation has received a cheque for £4,000 from the store giant to help with its work in the local community.

Phil Rogerson, Chairman of the Guiseley Community Foundation, said: “It is great news that we have been succesful in our bid to Morrisons. It was great thrill to discover that our bid with the Morrison’s Foundation had been successful and to  the tune of £4,000.

“This will allow us to start a project targetted at Year 6 pupils with a view to getting them to enjoy sport and physical activity. This will help combat obesity, which  is all too prevalent at that age, and hopefully we can give them greater confidence as they progress to the big world of secondary education.

“We will also be using some of the money to encourage adults who are 50 plus to take more exercise, be that simply walking more or getting involved in low impact activities such as Walking Football. We are extremely grateful to the Morrison’s Foundation without whom none of this would be possible.”
