Caister Football Club has received an extra boost to its attempts to improve their playing field which is in poor repair as it is not maintained well enough, with a £500 award from Great Yarmouth Sport and Leisure Trust.
The club offers people of all ages and ability to participate in football, with seven youth sides, and three adult sides consisting of 200 players.
This award will maximise Caister FCs fundraising efforts to purchase their own ground maintenance equipment. This will help people of all ages and abilities to participate in football nearer to home (adult sides are currently paying to train elsewhere). It will also help other groups who use the field (cricket club, scouts and the general public), as well as giving new teams access.
We are so pleased that the equipment that Caister Football Club will buy will help keep people active, and we hope that the lead taken by Caister Football Club will inspire other fundraisers in the sports sector to apply for funding.
We are accepting applications now from projects and individuals in the borough of Great Yarmouth, to review and award in February, please download your application form here!
