The Sports and Recreation Trust can provide grants to support local community projects that meet our objectives of improving sport and recreation facilities for organisations and individuals in the community.  These grants can be applied for either through the Charity Shop, the May Fayre sub Committee or direct to the Trust.

The intention is to provide grant funding support to projects for the purchase of equipment rather than to support operating costs.  However, each application will be assessed on its merits and grant decisions made accordingly.

Individuals or organisations applying for a grant must complete the Grant Application Form identifying the benefit to the community or individual and the other funds raised to date.  The Trust will only part fund a project, except in exceptional circumstances.

Previous beneficiaries of grants from the Sports and Recreation Trust include:

  • The Memorial Hall
  • Stoke Working Men’s Club
  • Castle School
  • Oak Tree House
  • The 1st Montacute Brownies
  • Stoke Band
  • Tiny Turrets
  • Hamdon Playgroup
  • Norton Primary School
  • St Mary’s Church
  • and many more.
