Funding for sports equipment/kit
The Postcode Community Trust’s new Community Sports Programme has opened its first funding round to sports clubs and organisations in London, Scotland & Wales. The programme which is expected to open to other areas of England in future funding rounds is currently inviting constituted sports clubs and organisations to apply for kit and equipment worth between £100 and £2,000.
Community groups and charities in London can apply for this round as long as they can provide proof that they are a constituted organisation and hold their own bank account. Registered charities should have a financial reserves strategy in place.
Funding is available for sports equipment and kits, including the following:
· Replacement of worn-out equipment and kits.
· A bank of new kits and equipment to support the launch of a new sports project.
· New kit and equipment which will expand capacity to meet demand for activities.
· Kit and equipment which will promote the inclusion of the disadvantaged or minorities within sports.
For more information, see the website: http://www.postcodecommunitytrust.org.uk/community-sports.htm. Closing date for applications is Friday 30 October.
