Grants for local clubs

CLUBS and community groups in Belper are being encouraged to promote healthy and active lifestyles with Derbyshire County Council’s £180,000 Sports Action Grant fund.

Grants of up to £1,000 will be made available to organisations to provide activities that encourage more people to take part in sport and physical activities, promote healthy lifestyles, and encourage volunteering in sport.

Cllr Carol Hart, of the county council, said: “The grants are designed to encourage people do their bit for their community and help a little go a long way to influence and improve hundreds of lives.”

Applications will open soon. Anyone interested can sign up at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/sportsactiongrant.
