Funding available for Peterborough and Cambridgeshire sports clubs

Sports and physical activity charity Living Sport is supporting a range of sports clubs and organisations across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough through the Mick George Sports Fund.

Wednesday, 10th March 2021, 3:05 pm

The fund provides grants of between £500 and £1,500 for community sports projects that aid health and wellbeing through the participation of sport and physical activity.

Funding has previously been used by sports clubs and community organisations to improve their facilities and offer to participants, with projects such as changing room improvements, clubhouse renovations and training or facility maintenance equipment.

In 2020, almost £50,000 was awarded to local organisations which support the delivery of sport and physical activity.
