THE Parkhead Powersports Club, which operates within the Hirst Welfare Centre in Ashington are sending three junior lifters to compete at the Junior World Championships in Szczyrk, Poland, from August 28 to September 3.

The three boys are in the middle of a frenzy of fundraising events to finance the trip, including a bag pack at Ashington Asda on July 21.

Anyone who would be prepared to sponsor the lads, or help in anyway, should contact senior coach Fred Mackenzie on (01670) 857037.

The boys James Duff, Ryan Strang and Andrew Conners, will take part in one more competition before the world championships, an international invitation contest between the four home nations, plus lifters from Belgium, Spain and Holland.

It will be held at the Hirst Welfare Centre on Saturday, July 28.

The public are welcome to attend.
