If your club is in need of funds for a project which is important for the club and the members there is support near to hand.
Help with applying for lottery funding
John Harris (Third Sector Consultancy) has worked with two bridge clubs recently – raising £10,000 for each through Big Lottery Awards for All.
One project was to refurbish and re-equip new premises and the other was to fund a fast track programme to bring new members into the game and the club.
To complete an application takes one day for Third Sector Consultancy and this covers: liaison and discussions about the need for the funding; developing any steps the club needs to take (e.g. consultation to evidence the need for the project); and writing the application. The club has to be constituted but does not have to be a registered charity. The cost would be £350 (no VAT).
