GUISELEY AFC's Community Foundation is celebrating their successful bid for funding from the Morrisons Foundation.

The Guiseley Foundation has received a cheque for £4,000 from the store giant to help with its work in the community.

Phil Rogerson, chairman of the Guiseley Community Foundation, said: "It is great news that we have been successful in our bid to the Morrisons Foundation.

"It was a thrill to discover that our bid had been successful and to the tune of £4,000.

"This will allow us to start a project targeted at Year Six pupils with a view to getting them to enjoy sport and physical activity.

"It will also help combat obesity, which is all too prevalent at that age, and hopefully we can give them greater confidence as they progress to the big world of secondary education.

"We will also be using some of the money to encourage adults who are over 50 to take more exercise, be that simply walking more or getting involved in low impact activities such as walking football.

"We are extremely grateful to the Morrisons Foundation, without whom none of this would be possible."
