Appeal for sports cash

APPLICATIONS to Wiltshire Council’s Funding Future Olympians and Paralympians Grant will close on Monday.

Building on the success of the London 2012 games, the council is working with firms to support rising sports stars by enabling them to pay for training and equipment and cover transport costs.

The council will give a total of £5,000 to elite athletes, but hopes that business partners will increase the sum.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday. For more information and to sign up go on
