Applicant Stuart Donnelly of Team East Lothian commented:
“The support and input we’ve received from the whole Tyne Esk Leader team has been fantastic from our very first approach all the way through to completing the financial process. I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to work together to complete the project and deliver something that we hope will help to inspire the whole East Lothian community to engage in athletics and improve their health and well-being.”
