Bishop Auckland Table Tennis Club, based in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, is celebrating after receiving a £300 donation from the MARS Milk Fund.

Matthew Porter, Club chairman, says: "The over 60s meet once a week and love playing, but the tables at the village hall are old and very tatty."

"With this donation from the MARS Milk Fund we can now buy a new table for our over 60s and invite other clubs to come and play too."

A recent survey conducted by MARS Milk revealed that despite seven out of ten of us starting the week with intention of spending at least two hours on our favourite sport or hobby, cost and tiredness invariably put paid to these plans.

The MARS Milk Fund was set up to help individuals, clubs and groups to try something new or simply to spend more time playing their favourite sport or hobby.

The MARS Milk Fund runs until October 6 2013 and has five £300 awards to donate each week.
