Flutter will be offering grants ranging from £500 to £5000 through its Cash4Clubs scheme to help grassroots clubs facing financial difficulties
DUBLIN, July 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- From Tuesday 28th July, the Cash4Clubs website funded by Flutter Entertainment will be accepting applications from community clubs in the UK & Ireland for its grassroots grants.
The charitable scheme is open to all local sports clubs in the UK & Ireland and has given out more than £350,000 since its launch in 2008 helping clubs to improve facilities; whether it's carrying out a range of repair jobs, purchasing new equipment, or arranging specialist training for its members.
Given the financial hardship many clubs have faced due to the impact of the Covid-19 crisis the maximum grant has been increased to £5,000 so the grants available will range from £500 to £5,000. The higher grants will go to clubs who need help to ensure they can continue the important work they do to keep their community active, during and beyond the pandemic.
The application process will encourage entrants to showcase how they would use their grant to make their local club a better place for its members, either via a written entry form online www.cash-4-clubs.com/apply or by getting creative and submitting a video application. Applicants will also be asked for details about how the Covid-19 crisis has impacted their club, in order to allow a thorough review and assessment as to how to allocate the higher grants to those most in need.
Entry is open until the 8th September with the awarded clubs being announced and presented with their grants by the 30th October.
