Aviva Funding Finalists

Hot on the heels of news that Anchs HC have been shortlisted for Medway Sports Club of the Year, we’ve now also heard that we’re one of the finalists for up to £1,000 of funding from Aviva.

Thanks to 1,880 votes by Anchs members and supporters, we reached the final round of the “sport in the community” category and are hoping that the much-needed funding boost will be winging its way to us soon.

Thanks to Chairman Gary Jackson for pushing this one and to all who voted!
