Sports clubs can compete for a pot of cash to help pay for new kit or equipment thanks to a one-off grant from Wembley National Stadium Trust.

For the first time, Haringey sports organisations can bid for grants of up to £2,500 from Wembley Stadium, who are giving a slice of their revenue to community sports activities.

It can be for new shirts, sports equipment, or even minor building works to sports premises or the costs of establishing a new activity within a club.

Stewart Goshawk, WNST's Chief Executive said: "We know that the local community will have missed having Spurs playing at their traditional home this season, so we are pleased to be able to direct some of the additional funding that Wembley is generating back into the local area.”

With a pot of £100,000 available, the one-off funding programme will provide grants of up to £2,500.

The scheme is open for applications from now until April 6, with decisions to be announced in early May.

Joseph Ejiofor, Haringey council’s cabinet member for customer services, said: “We are delighted that Haringey sports clubs, organisations and schools will benefit from this much needed funding.

“It’s important grass roots organisations get the vital support they need to develop and nurture our future sports talent.”
