Funding Still Available for Sports Related Projects
Six weeks remain to apply to Swale Borough Council’s grant scheme for sporting projects in our area.
The current round of funding will expire at the end of February, but £6000 remains unallocated.
The maximum grant for any one project is £1000 and only one application can be submitted by an organisation in each financial year.
Recent grants awarded include an Astro Turf Wicket being installed at Sheppey Cricket Club, and a self-propelled wheelchair for Indoor Bowls for MS Swale, in partnership with Swale Indoor Bowls Centre.
Peter Fathers, fundraiser for MS Swale says: “the money from Swale Borough Council part funded our specially designed wheelchairs. It means people with Multiple Sclerosis and other neurological conditions can bowl independently, using the same rules and conditions that able bodied people do. It’s wonderful to see everyone bowling together on an equal footing.”
Cllr Duncan Dewar-Whalley, cabinet member for finance and performance at Swale Borough Council says: “we encourage sporting organizations in Swale to apply for this funding. Helping residents get fit, active and healthy is a priority for the Council and applying for this money is an excellent step in the right direction.”
