Fund to help groups take part in more sport

COMMUNITY groups and individuals are being invited to enter a bid for funding which could help their interest in sport.

Mars Refuel Drink Fund is preparing to offer funds to groups it feels would be worthy of one of their cash donations – either £1,000, £500 or £250 – which will be given out every month for the next six months.

Research shows that sport can help both physical and mental attributes.

Applications can be made online at offering support with anything from equipment and travel costs, to improving training grounds and club houses.

The fund will be accepting applications from April 2.

Applicant must be 12 years or over and only one application per person, club or organisation.
