Hockey clubs can benefit from community fund

Hockey clubs can benefit from a £20k which is being made available to community groups who are looking for funding to help drive change in their area and field.

The ‘Choose Now, Change Lives’ fund, set up by Boost drinks, is looking to help fund grassroots sports teams and offering grants that benefit the local community and positively change lives.

It is being supported by the charity Groundwork who will be supporting Boost by administering grants to successful applicants.

Boost is now calling for local community groups, especially sporting organisations, to get involved and nominate themselves.

Adrian Hipkiss, Marketing Director at Boost said: “We are firm believers in supporting activity at a local level. Community groups are the life and soul of the areas we all live in – something that’s more important now than ever and will continue to be in the future.”

Groundworks national chief executive, Graham Duxbury, added: “Given the circumstances we are all living in at the moment, any support we can offer communities to ensure they can improve their local places and spaces will be of great benefit to all involved. We look forward to seeing the innovative projects put forward.”

To nominate a space or project that needs some help, please fill out a nomination form on a hub on the website:
