St Teresa’s Gaelic Athletic Club in West Belfast has completed the purchase of new fitness equipment after receiving a welcome cash donation from Power NI – Northern Ireland’s leading energy provider.
Located on the city’s Glen Road, Naomh Teresa was founded in 1963 and is currently represented at juvenile and senior level in Gaelic football and hurling.
This year is particularly important for the local club as it is celebrating its 60th anniversary, with the Under 17 boys’ football team’s championship final appearance one of the highlights.
The £300 grant – which has been donated by Power NI through its ‘Helping Hand’s initiative – has helped purchase weight equipment for the club’s new gym. Ian Fraser, the Power NI employee who nominated St Teresa’s for funding, said:
“It is fantastic that Power NI are able to support a club in our community and help it develop the gym so that it enhances the performance of the club members, both on and off the pitch,” he said. “The club is run by volunteers and any help is greatly appreciated by them and the club.”
Club member Mark McGuigan added: “The grant provided by Power NI will go a long way to improve the gym experience for all our members, and we are very appreciative for the funding. It is great that Power NI supports local groups such as ours.”
