Grants available for local sports clubs

SPORTS clubs in Doncaster are being urged to apply for a financial grant courtesy of the Mars Refuel Drink Fund.

Armthorpe Swimming Club were awarded £500 by the organisation in 2008.

The Mars Refuel Drink Fund, which was set up to encourage people to try new sports, is now open for entries.

One gold (£1000), four silver (£500) and eight bronze (£250) awards are up for grabs over the next six months to help with equipment/travel costs or to improve facilities.
