Favourable consideration will be given to those projects which directly benefit a large number of children and/or positively increase the quality of their lives.

Charity Manager Kathryn Biggin explains:

“After last year’s success, we are so excited to be bringing the Sports Challenge back this year, in partnership with Active Humber, to local teams in East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.”

“Last year the sports challenge granted back £21,787 into the local community which is an amazing testament to the clubs that participated.”

“Not only will the campaign inject thousands of pounds into the local sports community to improve sporting opportunities for children, but it aims to combat an increasing culture of grant dependency.”

“The teams will not only learn new skills but they will ensure sustainability for these groups going forward.”

Nicola Massingham from Active Humber said;

“Active Humber are excited to be involved with the Charity Sports Challenge 2019. The sports challenge is a brilliant opportunity for local clubs and sports organisations to raise funds to support local children to become more physically active, providing them with the benefits of regular physical activity, as well as providing the clubs with the ability to be more financially sustainable long term.”

“The application window is now open for four weeks and local groups are encouraged to apply for this exciting opportunity. It commences its four-week fundraising challenge from October.”
