Armchair club backs Taekwondo academy

A Mansfield sports club has received a £580 donation from a group that dedicates itself to raising money for sport in the area.

Mansfield Taekwondo Academy’s Wednesday evening class is pictured accepting the cheque from representatives of the Armchair Club, Geoff Waller (right) and Bill Taylor (third left).

Senior coach Adrian Tranter said: “The funding will enable us to invest in two coaches achieving their level two coaching certificate in taekwondo.

“This will help secure our development plans to have a safe and welcoming club for everyone who wants to participate in WTF Olympic Taekwondo.”

The Armchair Club, formed in 1982 by local business people, has donated more than £200,000 to local sport.
