AN ATHLETICS club is hoping to sprint ahead after a £250 cash boost.

The Blackheath and Bromley Harriers Athletics Club have bagged a Team Sport Award from EDF Energy Networks after employee Maureen Miller applied for a grant.

The company runs the scheme to encourage staff to take part in community-based projects that promote health and fitness.

Ms Miller, a transport support worker at EDF Energy's offices in Broadway, Bexleyheath, said: "I'm really delighted to have received this award as we have been able to fund essential training equipment for the athletes which will help them get ready for the start of this year's season in April."

Ms Miller, who regularly competes in the senior women's 400-metre event and has held the senior women's club record for the 400-metre hurdles since 1984, has been coaching at the club for three years.

The Harriers have more than 900 members of a variety of ages ranging from 11 year-olds through to some who are over 80.

Last year, EDF Enerfy, a partner of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, donated more than £13,000 to sporting groups.
