Centres invited to bid for more Olympic legacy cash

Posted on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 by Heather Dodd

With more than 1,300 local community sports groups having already benefited, sports clubs can once again bid for a share of £15 million of National Lottery investment from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities legacy fund.

The equestrian community has benefitted from the pot with riding centres such as Murton Equestrian Centre in Newcastle Upon Tyne already receiving a grant to refurbish their indoor arena following a successful bid.

Investment is available to breathe new life into tired facilities that can be unattractive, expensive to run and difficult to maintain, putting these clubs right back at the heart of their local communities. There is also money available to convert existing buildings into venues that are suitable for grassroots sport. Sports groups can find out more and bid at
