At Swindon Sports Forum’s recent AGM grants of over £12,800 were awarded to participating members of the Forum.
Small grants of up to £1200 were given to sports clubs across Swindon representing sports ranging from Croquet to Fencing and Angling to Cricket. These grants are awarded to clubs to help them increase their participation and membership and to improve their equipment or facilities.
David Bell, re-elected as Chairman of the Sports Forum, reported on a range of actions and activities the Sports Forum Steering group had completed during the year.
He said “We have worked hard during a year of change to keep the support in place for sport in Swindon. Working with our partners GLL, Wiltshire and Swindon Sport (WASP) and Swindon Borough Council, we have continued to help and support clubs to improve their provision to the general public.”
Six clubs have been working with Oaks Consultancy to put together applications of up to £10,000 each, in workshops funded by the Sports Forum, that are designed to ensure successful applications.
Vice-Chair Ian Jankinson said: “We are always looking for sports clubs to join the Forum and our revised business plan has shown us that we need help in the Steering Group from those with Marcomms and IT skills.”
“We are working with the Excalibur Group to put together an amazing Club Marketing deal which will give them £250 worth of publicity for an investment of just £50 in the Swindon wide Link and Totalguideto sites. Come and join us at the Swindon Sports Forum to find out more.”
