Young cyclists at the Jersey Cycling Association Youth Academy (JCAYA) are beginning 2019 with a boost after receiving significant funding from their official sponsor HSBC.
The Bank has presented the Association with funding of £10,725, enabling them to realise plans to further improve the clubhouse facilities for its young riders.
In September 2018 the JCAYA officially opened their new clubhouse at Les Quennevais cycle track where cyclists can relax, socialise with their friends and coaches, and have somewhere warm and dry to recuperate from training.
Commenting on the donation, Ashley Hillier, JCAYA Chairman said:
“We were absolutely taken by surprise with this funding from HSBC. The Bank’s sponsorship of the club is so important to us, especially to the future aspirations of all our young members. We are very much looking forward to starting 2019 in the knowledge that we’re off to a flying start and that the additional club facilities we can now provide will really help our members.”
Also commenting on the gift, Chantal Le Goff, Head of Sustainability, HSBC Channel Islands and Isle of Man said:
“As the club’s official sponsor, we feel so privileged to be able to help them achieve their goals. The JCAYA plays such a key role in helping young cyclists engage in physical activity, live a healthy lifestyle and reach their potential in the sport. We know this will make a difference to the JCAYA and look forward to seeing their members thrive in 2019.”
