Olympic legacy funding available

By Harriet Ernstsons Wednesday 02 January 2013 Updated: 03/01 09:50

THERE are just five days left for clubs and individuals to apply for grants to help create a lasting Olympic legacy.

Groups, schools and residents can submit a bid to Redditch Borough Council before Wednesday (January 9) for Sportivate funding to help expand existing programmes or start new ideas.

Coun Luke Stephens, responsible for leisure on the council, said: "Ensuring that the generation of Britons inspired by our incredible Olympic summer has ongoing opportunities to forge that inspiration into a lifetime of activity is a top sporting priority.

"Our goal is to support the foundations on which local sport is built and I hope that local sports clubs, schools, individuals or community groups will seize this opportunity and apply for the funding."

Applications must plan to run at least one session a week for between six and eight weeks, mainly aimed at 14 to 25-year-olds.

For more information or to submit an application, visit www.redditchbc.gov.uk/sportivate, e-mail matthew.hartles@bromsgroveandredditch.gov.uk or call 01527 64252 ext 3506.
