Sports groups can bid for cash as next round of Community Chest bidding starts.

Community sporting initiatives across Wrexham are urged to take advantage of a fund which could help them in their roles before the closing date for applications.

Sport Wales, which encourages and supports sports participation throughout Wales, is offering up to £1500 for groups via its Community Chest.

IF WE GET A BAD SETTLEMENT, WE’LL HAVE TO LOOK AT FURTHER CUTS. HAVE YOUR SAY…

More than £45k has been awarded to local clubs in Wrexham since May 2019

And the Sport Wales development grant is also open to groups looking at bigger projects, such as expansion or extension.

Cllr Andrew Atkinson, Lead Member for Youth Services and Anti-Poverty, with responsibility for Leisure, said: “There are a lot of good sports and athletics groups out there which do excellent work in their community.

“The Community Chest is there to help those clubs get the extra resources they need. Those involved should make sure they don’t miss out.”

Applications for the current round of funding is open until Wednesday, November 20, 2019, with the panel meeting to discuss applications on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.
