The PCC presentes Mike Sayer and Redcar Hockey Club players with the equipment.
A popular hockey club has been given a boost to its training sessions thanks to new equipment supported by Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger.
Redcar Hockey Club was supplied with a wide range of hockey equipment, including goal keeper kits, training bibs, training cones, outdoor sticks, indoor sticks and hockey balls.
The Club works within the local community to offer fun sporting activities for both children and adults, and boasts two junior teams for youngsters between the ages of eight and twelve, and three senior teams for those aged thirteen and over.
It’s run entirely by volunteers who are committed to providing diversionary activities and improving the health of community members through sporting activity.
Barry Coppinger said: "Clubs like this are real examples of local people getting together to organise something which benefits the community immensely. It’s great to see the kids and the adults having fun, whilst keeping fit.
"I think it’s very important to say thank you to those people within our areas who undertake voluntary work and help to improve the life of those within their locality, and I’m delighted to be able to say thank you to Redcar Hockey Club with this equipment which I am sure they will put to very good use."
Mike Sayer from Redcar Hockey Club added: "Receiving this equipment is a massive boost for the club, and will accelerate our ability to supply hockey training sessions into local schools. The money saved through this generous donation, will be used to qualify more of our young adult members as hockey coaches, and increase our ability to provide hockey activities to the local community".
