THE Vikings have been going from strength to strength with a string of good performances and a cash boost of almost £7,000 for the club.
The newest korfball club in Cambridgeshire, which is based in Ely, received a £6,987 grant from the Littleport-based ACRE, the Cambridgeshire branch of the Local Network Fund, which helps children and young people.
Laura Matthews, who plays for the club, said: "The money will go towards essential new equipment including a new kit for the under-16 team who are about to embark on the National Championships in Kent."
The first and second teams both picked up their first competitive wins recently.
