Alan Somerville, a Senior Development Officer of Cunninghame Housing Association recently presented a cheque for £1,000 to Alistair Mitchell and Kevin Earl, of the Annan Shotokhan Karate Club.

Annan Borders Shotokhan Karate Club is the Southwest of Scotland’s leading karate group under the instruction of Alistair Mitchell 8th Dan, a former World, European and Commonwealth Champion, offering both Traditional Karate and World Karate Federation Karate to people of all ages and abilities throughout the Annan area.

The club has its own premises after obtaining a unit (during Covid lockdown) within Provost Mills, Annan. Members helped turn the empty unit into a Japanese style dojo (training hall).

Funding was provided by Cunninghame Housing Association to assist with the provision of purchasing new training and safety equipment for all members as well as heaters for the unit during the colder months.

The funding for Annan Shotokhan Karate Club came from the Associations “Making Our Communities a Better Place Fund” which operates throughout the year (1st April to 31st March) until the allocated funding is exhausted.

We are thrilled to be able to support the Annan Shotokhan Karate Club, which is inclusive to all providing a safe, friendly environment for everyone who attends. What a fantastic facility to have in the local area!”

JANET STRANG, Chairperson, CHA
