After receiving over 1,000 entries, Cash4Clubs has revealed it will award a grant of £1,000 to members of Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre.
Celebrating its 12th annual campaign, Cash4Clubs is a grassroots sports scheme which provides clubs with grants to improve facilities, purchase new equipment, gain coaching qualifications and generally invest in the sustainability of their club.
Recognising the significant impact that Covid-19 has had on clubs’ finances, the maximum grant available has been increased to £5,000 and a total of £165,000 of grants have been allocated this year.
Cash4Clubs was launched in 2008 and has so far supported clubs with over £515,000 in funding.
The charitable scheme is open to all local sports clubs in the UK & Ireland.
Given the financial hardship many clubs have faced during the Covid-19 crisis, grants have been allocated to clubs that need help to ensure they can continue the important work they do to keep their community active, beyond the pandemic.
Following their successful application via the Cash4Clubs website, members of Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre will be spending the well-deserved cash on much-needed PPE and equipment.
Director Eric Noi was delighted after receiving the news that their club was amongst the 2020 winners.
He said: “Oldham Boxing and Personal Development combines boxing with educational, personal development and support services and seeks out individuals heading the wrong way.
"However, we have been closed down for months now.
"When we open we need to purchase all new equipment and PPE for our gym.”
