With the funding received from Milton Keynes Community Foundation (£1500), & the fundraising we were very kindly donated by our students, families & friends on LocalGiving the club was able to purchase 200 World Taekwondo approved mats.
Chris hired a van & went up to Quest Taekwondo in Yorkshire on Friday 16th March to collect all the mats.
It was all hands on deck when we got them back to the hall on the Friday evening, many students & parents helped to unload the mats and get them stored away in the hall.
On Saturday 17th March the club held an additional lesson & did a photoshoot with the new mats laid down. It took a lot of work unpacking the mats & sorting all the edging but it was well worth it.
The difference being able to train on mats was amazing, no more freezing cold feet & it's great for our more experienced athletes to take their training that 1 step further with the additional safety & confidence the mats bring.
Thank you to all the clubs volunteers & committee, without their hard work & dedication none of this would have been possible.
