The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Darts -

Peter­bor­ough Ath­letic Club ( es­tab­lished in 1955) has been awarded char­ity sta­tus by the Char­ity Com­mis­sion. The ac­co­lade comes on top of the club re­ceiv­ing the cov­eted Eng­land Ath­let­ics Club­mark a few years ago. The award of char­ity sta­tus in­di­cates the club’s ‘ ex­cel­lent gov­er­nance and fi­nan­cial re­port­ing pro­ce­dures as well as its com­mit­ment to in­clu­siv­ity and fo­cus on ex­cel­lent coach­ing across all age groups’. The char­ity sta­tus will al­low the club to bid for grants more widely and claim gift aid on cer­tain do­na­tions. Com­mit­teemem­ber, Matthew Dal­ton, wholed the bid for char­ity sta­tus, com­mented: “This is a real feather in our cap. The Com­mis­sion’s ap­pli­ca­tion pro­ce­dures are highly rig­or­ous and I amvery proud that the club met all its cri­te­ria with ease. “This re­in­forces our po­si­tion as one of the city’s most highly re­spected and well run sports clubs.” Bourne TownHar­ri­ers an­nual Christ­mas Hand­i­cap race through Bourne Woods on Sun­day saw Leah Clark win the ju­nior race and her mumKarenClark­take the se­nior race hon­ours.
