County benefits from 'Be Active Wales Fund'

Clubs from Pembrokeshire could be entitled to financial support Pembrokeshire’s sports clubs and groups have received more than £130,000 in financial support in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The ‘Be Active Wales Fund’ is a £4million fund, which has been made possible through money Sport Wales receives from Welsh Government and the National Lottery.
To date, 85 clubs in Pembrokeshire have benefited from the scheme, which across Wales has awarded over £2million to more than 800 groups so far.

Great news for Clarbie

Clarbeston Road AFC have recently been awarded more than £4,500 to enable the purchase of portable floodlights.
The lights will be used on the clubs numerous pitches, and will give much needed flexibility in working with smaller groups when current restrictions ease.

More funds are still available in ‘Protect’ and ‘Progress’ strands

The Be Active Wales Fund remains open for applications, with two strands focusing on Protect and Progress.
The Protect element aims to help clubs or groups who are at immediate financial risk, and need assistance in covering ongoing costs such as rent and utilities, due to lost income.
The Progress element looks to support long-term sustainability, with funding available to help tackle inequality, create long-term solutions and take a more innovative approach.
