A fledgling judo club in County Durham has been given a cash grant to help it cope with an increase in demand following the Olympics.
Ouston Judo Club saw its membership jump from just six youngsters before London 2012, to 21 during August when the Games were held.
In September, a further eight young people from the village came forward wanting to join.
Now the club has received £700 from Cestria Community Housing, via the County Durham Community Foundation, to pay for 70 new judo mats.
The mats will help the club provide sporting opportunities for more young people in the village, which has suffered from problems including unemployment and youth crime.
Cestria made the donation through County Durham Community Foundation which brings together donors and good causes in the county.
