Cowshed Launches A Community Sport Fund For Brace’s Bread
Cowshed has developed a Community Sport Fund for their client, Brace’s Bakery, bringing together their currently ad hoc sponsorship packages into one large sporting grant fund of £10,000
14 April saw the launch of the new £10,000 Community Sport Fund to support grassroots sports clubs, in partnership with the South Wales Argus. Brace’s Community Sport Fund grants of £250-£500 are available to small sporting organisations across South East Wales and the Valleys.
From kit sponsorship and new sports equipment to sport events and training for coaches, the grants will help keep community sport alive.
Scott Richardson, Brace’s CEO, said “Our success is down to our loyal and local customers so it’s very important to us to give something back to the local communities that support us. Through the Brace’s Community Sport Fund we hope to give local clubs more opportunities to continue the fantastic work they’re doing.
“The fund isn’t just open to traditional sports groups like football and rugby; perhaps you are a boules club which needs a new green or a dance group requiring travel for a competition. We’d love to hear from you too.”
Vicki Spencer-Francis at Cowshed said: “The Community Sport Fund is a prime example of one of the ways that we work with clients to help them connect with their communities, streamline business practice and build reputation. Our experience of working with large charities and grant funding bodies enables us to develop and administer a fund such as this, in a way that no other agency in Wales can.’
Interested groups can apply for a slice of Brace’s Community Sport Fund grant now by completing a simple application form on the website. Applications will close on Thursday 26 May 2016.
