At the beginning of the year, committee members worked on and completed a funding application form to the Sussex Community Foundation.
The Sussex Community Foundation offers grants which help to address disadvantage and deprivation and build resilience in Sussex communities. They are particularly keen to support grassroots community groups and small-to-medium sized voluntary organisations.
Within the application, we explained and detailed how funds for sporting activities can help our members in numerous ways. We want to help build our children’s confidence, to learn new skills and to socialise in a safe and secure environment. We also explained how parents / carers also benefit from being able to attend activities will other adults in a similar situation.
In the forthcoming months, the funds will be used to heavily subsidise the following; Swimming sessions at St Marys school, Gym sessions, Urban Jump, Ringo-ing at Knockhatch, And even the possibility of a PGL day next year!
This money will make a real difference to our families and most importantly your children can benefit from these amazing opportunities.
