Achievement Awards deadline fast approaching
Sports and arts performers in West Oxfordshire are being urged not to miss out on the chance of receiving a grant from the District Council to help them progress.
The deadline for applications to the Council’s Sports and Arts Achievement Awards is October 15th.
Funding between £50 and £250 is available to promising sports and arts performers in the district and Higher Achievement Awards, up to £1,000, are available to those demonstrating excellence, usually at national standard, in their field.
Applicants must be over 14 and be able to demonstrate their commitment and dedication to their sport or art, and show that the funding would help them to progress.
Fourteen-year-old Jamie Coles, from Ledwell, who pays cricket at county level for Oxfordshire as well as for Banbury Cricket Club, received a £175 Sports Achievement Award from the Council earlier this year. He used the money towards buying a new cricket kit and said: “It helped a lot.”
Further information, including details of criteria, guidance on how to apply and application forms, are available on the Council’s website, www.westoxon.gov.uk, or by calling Leisure and Tourism on 01993 861080. Alternatively, email email@example.com
