A Bridlington sports club has benefitted from a £1,000 grant given out by a local company.

Bridlington Cricket Club currently works with six junior schools, and the funding from the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust will enable the club to run free weekly indoor cricket sessions during the winter months.

This provided fully qualified coaching sessions in the off season and will benefit approximately 120 boys and girls aged eight to 16.

Alongside the cricket club, 19 more community groups in Yorkshire received funding - making it 43 that have benefitted since the Trust was officially launched in April 2012.

It was established to mark the 15th anniversary of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in compensation claims for personal injury, medical negligence and professional negligence.

Every three months, funds are allocated to a variety of organisations, each receiving up to £1,000 to encourage grassroots activities across Yorkshire.

Neil Hudgell, Managing Director of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, said: “We’re once again delighted to be able to help a wide variety of organisations which are clearly having such a positive impact and helping their local communities.

“We’d like to encourage eligible organisations from across Yorkshire to apply for the funding as we hope the Trust will benefit as many people in the county as possible.”

To be considered for a grant of up to £1,000, applicants must be based in Yorkshire, have a turnover of less than £25,000 and demonstrate the impact funding will have on a local community.
