A CHILDREN’S club will spend a £400 grant on new sports equipment.

Canvey Island Town Council presented a cheque for £400, from their grants scheme, to the new Canvey Junior Phab Club, based at King George’s Pavilion hall, in the town centre.

Phab, which stands for Physically Handicapped and Able Bodied, will use the cash to buy an airhockey table, football table and other equipment.

Peter May, chairman of Canvey Island Town Council said: “Congratulations to the club on their successful application for grant funding. The club is a useful service for children, offering activities like arts and craft, cooking, music, animation and film projects, kurling competitions as well as outings and days out.

“It is a new project which is much needed on the island, aimed at seven to 16-year-olds.”

Every year the town council sets aside money for grants to benefit people and projects on Canvey.

Applications will be considered for financial assistance towards a specific project, item or activity which is noncommercial.
