Funding Available For Sporting Stars

Sports Excellence Grants 2018

Up to £2,000 in grants is once again being made available to sportspeople in Littlehampton, courtesy of the Town Council.

Together with Littlehampton Sports Forum the Council honours an ongoing commitment to give financial support to local sportspeople, helping them to achieve sporting excellence.

The Financial Awards for Sporting Excellence are open to Littlehampton residents who require additional financial support towards training, competition fees, transport, accommodation and equipment. Aimed at those already playing at county level, the fund enables such individuals to develop their potential and to progress further in their chosen sport.

With no age restrictions awards of up to £1,000 will be available to each recipient, but applications should be made for as little as needed to allow more people to benefit.

Cllr Billy Blanchard-Cooper, Chair of the Sports Forum said: “Assisting local sporting talent is a significant aspect of the Council’s work in the community and these grants often mean that sportspeople can continue to excel in their chosen sport and fly the flag for Littlehampton.”

Last year’s recipients included Para Swimmer Caleb Grace who was selected to swim for Great Britain in the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi in March 2019. Applications can be made online or obtained from the Littlehampton Town Council offices, Manor House, Church Street. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 31st July 2019.
