Sports clubs, schools and community groups can benefit from £300k Olympics legacy fund

Sports clubs, schools and community groups can benefit from a £300,000 Olympics legacy fund by applying from Monday.

The money has been allocated as part of Redbridge Council’s commitment to creating a “lasting legacy from the 2012 Games”, according to a council spokesman.

It will be administered over two funding rounds, with grants of between £1,000 and £15,000.

Projects in four areas will be funded - sustainability; community and volunteering; culture and heritage and sport.

Applications for the first round of funding must be received by the council by May 19.
