Over £16,000 is to be handed out to sports clubs in Powys in the latest round of Sportlot Community Chest grants.

The scheme, which is administered by Powys County Council, is designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally. Local organisations successful in the latest round of funding bids include:

Newtown Whitestars JFC: £1,000 (coach education)

Sportlot Community Chest grant funding is open to sports clubs, physical activity groups and businesses for projects which help build a fitter, healthier county. Powys has been allocated £77,000 for physical activity and sport initiatives for 2011/12. The next closing date for the applications is May 26.

The Community Chest grant has been increased so clubs can apply up to £1,500 per application, due to the increased costs of Coach Education courses.
