We are raising money for the Youth Athletics track in Goole, East Yorkshire, to be relined so that the kids can continue to train and compete.
Goole Youth Athletic Club was formed in 1961 and relatives of those at its conception still train with the club today !
GYAC is a fully self funding and volunteer run community group that trains children as young as 8 years old in different athletic disciplines - from 600 metres to high jump and many more.
We have around 50 members and we have use of the only 4 lane track in East Yorkshire.
Over the last 20 years little maintenance has taken place and we now have a track with lines you can't see. This makes it difficult for young athletes to compete at other venues where the tracks are clearly marked.
To resolve this we are trying to raise £7200 to cover the cost of relining the track.
Before the track can be relined it needs to be cleaned and professionals have quoted us £4250 which we don't have, so we have taken steps to save the money and do the work ourselves.
Goole Town Council have helped by hiring equipment to do the job and we have already made good progress.
Please help us by donating and helping to ensure that Goole has a viable running track for the next ten years and that our young athletes can compete on a level playing field.
