Grants available for sporting events

Derbyshire’s Community Sports Trust has grants of up to £250 for local community organisations, clubs and parish/town councils to help them run events with a sporting theme this summer.

The grants, available now on a first-come, first-served basis, are part of a nationwide Community Games project, funded through the government’s Social Action Fund.

“This is a great opportunity for us to support local volunteers who have been inspired by London 2012, and have sporty plans for their summer carnivals, galas, fun runs and events,” said Hayley Lever, CST Chief Officer.
