Time is running out for future sporting stars and sports clubs in the Advertiser district to bid for funding support.

Last month, Nottinghamshire County Council opened two annual grant schemes – the Community Sports Fund and the Rising Stars Fund – which aim to increase participation and harness local talent but applications must be in by July 22.

Between £500 and £1,500 is available with the Community Sports Fund which can cover coaching fees, facility hire and equipment for projects starting after October 2014. While grants of up to £400 are available for individual sportspeople aged 19 and under, competing at a regional or national level.
