Sport cash available

ORGANISERS of sports-themed events in Belper this summer can bag grants of up to £250 from Derbyshire’s Community Sports Trust.

The cash is being made available as part of a nationwide Community Games project, funded through the Government’s Social Action Fund. The grants are available from May 1, on a first come first served basis.

Sports trust chief officer, Hayley Lever, said: “The grant can help them to pay for equipment, medals, marketing and other resources that they need to put that extra little ‘pazzaz’ into their event. This funding will help to bring the spirit of the 2012 Games to community playing fields this summer.”
