Club chairman Christine Oldroyd said: “The grant will allow us to keep our equipment in a more secure situation.

“We are grateful to the foundation for their generosity and plan to make the best use of the container for years to come.”

Last year, Marsie represented GB at the World Youth Archery Championships in China, where she reached the last 32 of the Junior Compound individuals event.
