Cashis up for grabs for equipment and tuition by Valley’s budding young sportspeople and performance artists.
Ribble Valley Borough Council has launched its 2015 sports and arts excellence grants scheme to help youngsters excel in sport, dance, drama and music. The successful scheme has supported numerous young Ribble Valley athletes and performance artists at county and national level, including London Olympic silver medallist Samantha Murray and bronze medallist Jon Schofield.
The grants will be available from April 2015 for sport, dance, drama and music (instrumental and voice), with priority given to those with a strong track record in their chosen discipline and working towards formal qualifications. The deadline for applications is February 13th, and application packs are available from the council’s admin officer, Olwen Heap, on 01200 414408, or at ribblevalley.gov.uk.
