There’s just over two weeks to go before the first window of opportunity to apply for funding from the 360 Grassroots Foundation closes.
Set up by 360 Chartered Accountants, the Foundation will initially help support participation in grassroots sport for underprivileged and financially disadvantaged children in the HU1 to HU9 postcodes.
360 Managing Director Adrian Hunter, who is Chair of the charity, said the Foundation wants to remove any financial barriers for families who are struggling with the cost of sports subscriptions, kit or travel.
“We want to make sure that any young person who wants to play sport can do so without worrying about how much it costs. Playing sport has so many benefits, both physically and mentally, and we want to encourage parents and carers to come forward to apply for funding before the window closes on 31st January.”
“We have had a number of applications already but we don’t want anyone to miss out, so do please get in touch by filling in the application form or if you have any questions, just let us know.”
As well as their own fundraising events, the 360 Grassroots Foundation is also working with local sports clubs and agencies, including Active Humber and Sport England through their Try Rugby initiative with West Hull ARLFC.
Applications should be made either direct for children from their parent or guardian by completing the application form on the 360 website or through their club if they have one. It is anticipated that all successful applicants will be notified during February 2023.
