Community Games Event Funding
This is your chance to bring a little bit of London 2012 to your local community. A new initiative in Bucks is offering funding to support local groups, families, individuals and sports clubs to organise a ‘Community Games’ event to celebrate and legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Administered by Bucks Sport and supported by South Bucks District Council the ‘Community Games Offer’ offers £250 plus extensive promotional materials towards community events with a sporting or cultural element.
South Bucks District Councillor Anita Cranmer, Portfolio Holder for Community, said, “The Community Games Offer is a wonderful opportunity to get support for a community event that anyone can set up enabling them to access funding as well as bunting, t-shirts, promotion cards and assistance with arranging insurance.”
The offer intends to give thousands of people across the county their own Olympic and Paralympic moment. To help community groups and organisations, Bucks Sport has outlined the support that is available to existing and new event organisers in Buckinghamshire during 2012.
All you need to do to access this great offer is to register your event at www.communitygames.org.uk and Bucks Sport will be in touch to organise your support package. If you have any questions relating to the support and resources available to you, please contact Bucks Sport on 01296 585215. The budget for the community games is limited so apply early to avoid disappointment.
