Grants to get you moving

Voluntary and non-profit organisations wanting to encourage people to become more active, could win £20,000 to get new programmes up and running.

Five grants totalling more than £100,000 are up for grabs for new sport and physical activity initiatives under the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund which was launched by Roy Millar, Chairman of the Northern Ireland Sports Forum and former Olympic swimmer Melanie Nocher. Melanie is this year’s Ambassador for the Coca-Cola Thank You Fund.

Roy Millar said that the Fund presented a brilliant opportunity to turn inspiration into reality.

“We are calling on organisations to share their ideas on how to get Northern Ireland leading a more active lifestyle through sport. We want innovative projects that will grab people’s attention and make a difference across local communities in Northern Ireland. The Coca-Cola Thank You Fund can act as a real driving force in terms of bringing such ideas to life so we encourage relevant groups to put their hat in the ring and be part of it.”

Applications are being accepted online until 6pm on June 16, at
