Gwynedd Com­mu­nity Chest grants for sports clubs up for grabs

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

GRANTS of up to £1,500 are avail­able to lo­cal sports clubs through the Gwynedd Com­mu­nity Chest.

The fund­ing pro­vides sup­port to var­i­ous clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions who are in­volved in sports and phys­i­cal fit­ness ac­tiv­i­ties across the county, with the aim of pro­vid­ing bet­ter sport­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for Gwynedd res­i­dents.

There is no need to be a sports club to ap­ply - com­mu­nity vil­lage halls and lo­cal com­mit­tees can sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion if they are ea­ger to de­velop phys­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties within their com­mu­nity.

Coun­cil­lor Craig ab Iago, Gwynedd Coun­cil Cab­i­net Mem­ber said: “The pur­pose of this fund is to pro­mote a va­ri­ety of sports across Gwynedd. As a Coun­cil, we recog­nise the im­por­tance of sports clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions, and it’s im­por­tant we pro­vide as much sup­port as we can for them to suc­ceed.

“I would en­cour­age any club or sports or­gan­i­sa­tion in Gwynedd who be­lieve they are el­i­gi­ble for fi­nan­cial sup­port from the Com­mu­nity Chest to sub­mit an ap­pli­ca­tion.

“A grant of this kind can help clubs to de­velop de­spite in the cur­rent chal­leng­ing fi­nan­cial times.”

The next clos­ing date for sub­mit­ting ap­pli­ca­tions is 10 Jan­uary 2019.

Ap­pli­ca­tions should be sub­mit­ted be­fore mid-day.

You can fill in an ap­pli­ca­tion form on­line by vis­it­ing Sports Wales web­site. www.sports. wales (Fund­ing-GrantsCom­mu­nity Chest) and click on ‘Ap­ply On­line’.
