More than 100 clubs helped by emergency storm relief fund
As sports facilities and organisations assess the damage from the recent storms, our fund is already helping many.
More than 100 sports clubs and organisations have received grants from our emergency storm relief fund in just a week.
Set up to help those affected by Storms Ciara and Dennis, the fund has seen grants from hundreds of pounds to £5,000 awarded to clubs and organisations across the country.
Many are still unable to safely access their facilities in places like the Wye and Severn Valleys, but our fund – which awards National Lottery grants through our Community Asset Fund application portal – remains open, with a quick decision process and access to cash for places in need.
Carlisle Cricket Club is one organisation to have successfully applied to the fund, with secretary Mark Davidson grateful for the support.
“We’re delighted to receive emergency flood relief funding,” he said. “Our clubhouse, netting areas, outfield and kit rooms were savaged by the recent storms.
“It's vital for clubs like Carlisle to access funding quickly to enable us to get back on our feet at the earliest opportunity and enable the community and membership to once again access our excellent facilities in the heart of the city."
