Sports clubs urged to apply for share of £100,000 pot
From the Windsor Observer:
SPORTS clubs have been invited to apply for a share of £100,000. Get Berkshire Active, the county sports partnership, has announced it has the six-figure sum to distribute to projects across Berkshire during 2013 as part of the national Sportivate programme.
Funding is open to sport and physical activity projects that last between 6-8 weeks and target 14-25 year olds.
Kirsty Heath, Get Berkshire Active’s partnership development coordinator, says it’s a fantastic opportunity to engage young people with sport.
“Last year we funded over 80 projects across the county and we are hoping to match that or even better it in 2013.
Sportivate has been a tremendous success and we really want to hear from people wanting funding to help get young people involved in sport – particularly to encourage those who wouldn’t typically get involved.
That is what Sportivate is all about – getting young people interested in sport and physical activity, and maintaining that interest.”
The deadline for applying for the first round of funding is at 5pm on January 23.
