Ice Dundee is delighted to receive £30,000 as part of sportscotland‘s direct club investment scheme, supporting local community clubs.
Joe FitzPatrick, Dundee City West MSP and Scottish sport minister, visited Ice Dundee and was impressed by the top skaters showing of their skills. He said: “The clubs receiving funding have demonstrated their commitment to providing access to sport for people of all ages and abilities in Dundee and I look forward to seeing the impact their projects will have in the next few years.”
