It’s time for Dispatch district sports organisations to put in grant bid from Notts County Council’s £1 million sports legacy fund.
That’s the message from London 2012 gold medallist and ‘blade-runner’ Richard Whitehead. He has endorsed the fund, which has now opened for applications.
The council has announced the fund for local sports clubs in the wake of a fantastic summer of sport at London 2012. The idea is seen as a trailblazer nationally and has already received the backing of the Local Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (aralympic Games (LOCOG), Lord Coe, who described it as a ‘fantastic’ example of such a scheme.
