As a Judo club we have been embedded in the Warrenpoint and Burren area for over 50 years. We have had many of the local youth of each generation pass through our doors and we have always been proud of our ability to support our members.
However in todays turbulent times when the bills rise and we find travelling to and from competitions and the additional training more expensive. We are pleased to advise that our local Credit Union have offered sponsorship to the value of £250 to help Dawid to the world championships.
Dawid will be using these much needed funds towards his training, travelling and competition entry costs.
If you would like to come onboard as a sponsor for Dawid or for the club please feel free to reach out.If you or your child would like to join our club we currently have spaces open in both our kids and adult classes.
