After receiving almost 1,300 entries submitted over three months, Cash 4 Clubs is pleased to award a grant of £1000 to members of Phoenix Youth JFC following its 10th annual summer campaign, which provides grassroots sports clubs with grants of £500 right up to £1,000.

The charitable scheme was launched in 2008 and is open to all local, grassroots sports clubs in the UK and has provided over £300,000 pounds worth of financial support to local sports clubs to date. The scheme has been designed to help small clubs to fund repairs, purchase new equipment, transport to competitions and generally contributing towards the future sustainability of these vital clubs.

After applying for a grant via the Cash 4 Clubs website, members of Phoenix Youth JFC will be spending the well-deserved cash on much needed kit and equipment to enable more players to benefit Welfare Officer, Leanne Fletcher was delighted after receiving the news that their club was amongst the 2018 winners:
“Running a Junior Football club is extremely rewarding, but doesn’t come without its difficulties.

“The application for Cash 4 Clubs was really simple, we simply submitted a written entry, which meant we could get all of our requirements across, as well as showcase our current facilities”.

In addition to the grants of £500, £750 and £1,000, Cash 4 Clubs has also chosen one lucky club to receive £10,000, in honour of the scheme’s 10th birthday.

Supporting clubs and athletes at all levels, not just professionals, is extremely important to us, and we can see how our grants have a direct impact on a local level.
