Leeds' Olympic Champion boxer Nicola Adams was on hand this weekend to fire-up our region's Tour Makers. Five thousand of them have been at the Leeds Arena on their first day of training ahead of the Grand Depart in 40 days.

Bowling club secures funding a year after facing closure

A bowling club has secured almost £50,000 in funding a little over a year after they faced closure.

Just 12 months ago financial difficulty meant that Northallerton Bowling Club's future was in doubt.

But members have managed to put the club back on a more firm financial footing through a mixture of sponsorship and fundraising.

And now the club has been told that a bid for Sport England Inspired Facilities funding has been successful.

The club will receive £47,700 - securing its future.

"It is absolutely mind-blowing; a lot of our members are still in shock.

"We thought our plans were a bit pie in the ski; they're now now. We really can do all those things."

– Val Coe, chairwoman
