Our supporters at The Mercury were understandably concerned about the replacement of the “Sport England – Inspirational Places Fund” with the new “Community Asset Fund”. This is because the original funding stream would fund up to 75% of the cost of projects AND our project seemed a perfect fit for the criteria and the new funding stream does not fit quite so well.
The Community Asset Fund does not usually fund more than 50% of projects.
However, we at Westhaven remain sanguine and as luck would have it, we believe we may have found a new funding source that could be really significant – watch these pages to see what happens next on this matter.
In the meantime we have the Mr. Hicks’s run, the May Ball and our Charity Auction still to come!
