Harriers racing ahead with support of community

Posted onPosted on 1st Oct

A banner has been erected at Berry Hill athletics track to highlight support The Armchair Club has given to Mansfield Harriers Athletic Club.

Harriers returned to the Mansfield track this summer after a nine-year absence, but the club needed to pay a rent.

Chair Pat Carlan said: “A generous grant from The Armchair Club was allocated to pay the rental cost of the facility for two years, enabling the club to get on with delivering sport to the local community.

“Mansfield Harriers would like to thank The Armchair Club for assisting them to return to their home of athletics.”

The Armchair Club has been supporting sportsmen, women and children across Mansfield and Ashfield for almost 40 years.

Mansfield Harriers members are pictured either side of the banner at Berry Hill athletics track, which shows the support of The Armchair Club for Harriers. Behind the banner are, from left, The Armchair Club’s Gary Jordan, Geoff Waller, Mike Collins, Bill Taylor, Harriers chair Pat Carlan, and Stewart Rickersey, also of The Armchair Club.
