Hartlepool Sport CIC

Hartlepool Sport CIC's mission:

"To support a culture of excellence, active lifestyles, a love of learning and community service".

The PFC Trust was set-up with a broad mission of ‘helping Hartlepool people’. Within a short time, it was identified that ‘Sport’ was a major element of the Trust’s focus. Parallel to the Trust being created, a series of discussions were held between Hartlepool Borough Council, Hartlepool United Football Club, Hartlepool College of Further Education, LoveHartlepool representatives and The PFC Trust.

Subsequently, on 10th February 2020, The PFC Trust board agreed to fund a scoping study to discover the best use of its resources within sport in Hartlepool, to support clubs and to support the preventative agenda for health and wellbeing with the ultimate aim of making the sport-arm self-sustaining. Following the completion of the study, and presentation to the PFC Trust's Trustees, Hartlepool Sport CIC was established on 1st September 2020.

Who we've helped... so far

Hartlepool St. Francis Football Club

Frances had once been involved in the running of this club, so it was only natural that this was the first organisation to benefit from her lottery win. The club has over 300 players, across all ages and funding was given to allow the club to fund kit and trophies.

Hartlepool Mavericks Dodgeball Club

Being active is an important part of staying healthy and the PFC Trust have supported many sports organisations.  One example is the Hartlepool Mavericks Dodgeball Club – the town's first Dodgeball Club. Established just a few years ago, the Club has already enjoyed huge success at National level, with several of their younger age group teams bringing home British Championship titles to Hartlepool. The membership has grown at a rapid rate, and our support for this very talented and dedicated Club has included the installation of flooring alongside other sponsorship.

British Cycling Level 2 Course

Manilla Cycling, North East BMX, Hartlepool Borough Council and Hartlepool Sport are collectively delivering a Level 2 cycling course from British Cycling. 

This will create 4 new level 2 cycling coaches at each club (8 in total), both of which operate from Summerhill.  This supports both clubs in their plans to grow, and also benefits the local authority with their plans for developing cycling facilities at Summerhill and across the town.
