27/01/2021- Funding


Deadline for the Community Club Restart Fund has been extended until 15th February 2021. 

The deadline for applications for the Covid-19 Community Club Restart Fund has been extended until the 15th February 2021. Following feedback from the community, as well as the tightening of lockdown restrictions across the UK at the start of 2021, we have extended the deadline to allow clubs who have faced additional barriers and uncertainties an opportunity to submit their applications.

The Covid-19 Community Club Restart Fund is designed to help BF affiliated community clubs restart session activity after the enforced shutdown, attracting their club members back into fencing.  It will prioritise those experiencing short term financial hardship and who have genuine concerns with being able to make sessions financially viable or are facing the potential ceasing of operations.

As part of the FIE’s Global Support Plan National Federations were allocated €4000 euros (£3310) to support the recovery of fencing at a national level. BF has contributed an additional £1690, providing a total of £5000 to be awarded as grants of up £250 for BF affiliated clubs (one application per club).
