The Sportspace sports development team are looking for local sports clubs who could benefit from a cash boost.

As part of the Sport England Sportivate initiative, Sportspace have funding available for any local club or organisation who would be interested in engaging young people in sporting activities – and the deadline for applications is fast approaching.

It is funded by the National Lottery, with £56 million being invested as part of the London 2012 Legacy plans for the country.

It is now halfway through the fourth year of funding and Sportspace still have some money to allocate to worthwhile projects in Dacorum in 2014/15.

The organisation is looking for enthusiastic clubs and organisations to run short courses in a sport of their choice to encourage young people to get involved in an activity they haven’t tried before.
