Over £22,000 has been handed out to sports organisations across the county with Montgomeryshire doing particularly well.

And now sports and physical groups in Powys are being urged by the council’s Sports Development Team to take advantage of a grant worth up to £1,500 to help contribute to creating thriving clubs which will continue to create opportunities through enterprise and innovation.

The grants are designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally and are available through the Sportlot Community Chest, the Sports Council for Wales National Lottery funded grant aid scheme.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Sports Development, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to award these grants to the 15 clubs, which will help them thrive and make a difference to sport and physical activity in their area.

“With £90,000 available for this financial year, I’m urging organisations to submit applications so they don’t miss out on this grant funding.”
