Larger Community Chest grants

Paul Dancey on 18/04/2011

The maximum grant available for sports projects through the Community Chest scheme has been increased from 1,000 to 1,500. This National Lottery scheme is run locally by all Local Authorities, and is designed to encourage more people to be more active, more often.

Community Chest funding can benefit clubs and organizations in a variety of ways, from buying new equipment to funding coaching qualifications, and sports clubs and organizations are therefore being encouraged to make the most of the increased funding now available.

Professor Laura McAllister, Chair of Sport Wales, said: "With local panels deciding local needs, Community Chest has been and continues to be a huge success and is very popular throughout Wales. We are very pleased to be able to boost the grant funds available to worthwhile sports projects across the country.

"It is the hard work and commitment at this grass-roots level that really makes a significant contribution to us achieving our ambitions of getting 'every child hooked on sport for life' and to create 'a nation of champions'."
