District councillor Hazel Newcombe presented a donation of £500 to chief instructor Alan Jarvis of the Kickboxing Club, Chapel St Leonards.
The club meets every Friday from 6pm until 8pm at Chapel St Leonards’ Village Hall.
The donation comes from Coun Newcombe’s Community Initiative Scheme, and will go towards the upkeep of the club, which includes the purchase of new equipment.
Cloun Newcombe said “Alan Jarvis is a local man who grew up in the village and he has more than 12 years’ experience within the sport.
“I am more than happy to help support this vital amenity within the village.
“It is an excellent club, which, not only teaches kickboxing, but also helps to promote a more healthy lifestyle for all ages”
