£5k funding boost for Grassroots sport in the Midlands

Sport clubs and teams across the Midlands are being urged to apply for a unique funding scheme run by a Leicester-based sportswear firm.

After a successful two years, GFORCE Sportswear’s ‘GFORCE Grassroots Campaign’, which aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations, is now open for nominations for 2018.

Reinforcing its commitment to grassroots sport, the company has again set aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations can apply for grants from, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

In 2016 and 2017, 12 donations at a total of £10,000 were made to clubs across the Midlands area.

Simon Ward, group sales director at GFORCE, said: “We’ve been absolutely delighted with how our Grassroots campaign has gone over the last two years. We made 12 donations supporting everything from girls cricket and over 50’s walking football to badminton, bowls and dodgeball providing either kit or money which was put towards a range of things such as travel costs and new changing facilities.

“It was such a success that we have decided to run it for another year so we can reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the Midlands.

“Our company has a proud history of supporting the community and this campaign is a great way to do just that, as well as reaffirming our commitment to grassroots sport. We know how hard it is for sports clubs to keep going and getting access to funding can be a real issue, so we urge teams across the region to take advantage of this unique opportunity.”

Sports teams and clubs of any type of sport whose members are over the age of 10 and are based in the Midlands area (which includes the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Herefordshire, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Midlands Metropolitan Boroughs and Worcestershire) will be able to apply by visiting www.gforcesportswear.co.uk/info/grassroots.
Entries for the first phase of this initiative can be submitted between 26 March and 31 May 2018 and the first successful applicants will be notified by 30 June 2018. Full terms and conditions can also be found on the website.

GFORCE, based on London Road in Leicester, is a high performance sports brand offered by Gymphlex Ltd - member of a group of companies, also including Leicester-based uniform specialists Grahame Gardner Ltd.
