Sport clubs and teams across the East Midlands are being urged to apply for a unique funding scheme which has been launched by a Leicester-based sportswear firm.

GFORCE Teamwear has unveiled the ‘GFORCE Grassroots Campaign’ which aims to provide financial support to help local sports teams and clubs from across the region achieve their aspirations.

Reinforcing its commitment to grassroots sport, the company has set aside a £5,000 pot of money which organisations can apply for grants from, with a maximum value of up to £750 per team or club.

Simon Ward, sales director at GFORCE, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be launching our GFORCE Grassroots campaign which will reward the dedication, passion and success of sports teams and clubs from across the East Midlands. Our company has a proud history of supporting the local community and this campaign is a great way to do just that.”

Sports teams and clubs of any type of sport whose members are over the age of 10 and who live or train in the East Midlands area will be able to apply by visiting www.gforcesportswear.co.uk/info/grassroots. Entries for the first phase of this initiative can be submitted until May 31.
