About The Mick George Sports Fund (in partnership with Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport)

Grants between £500 and £1500 are available for small scale capital projects and equipment. The total project value must be less than £5000
Examples may include:

  • General improvements to sports facilities
  • Training / practice equipment (site based)
  • Football / rugby goal posts
  • Changing room improvements
  • Cricket nets / screens
  • Outdoor gym equipment
  • Drainage and field improvements
  • Rollers / mowers / lining machines

Match funding is not required for projects with a total cost that is £1.5K or less. If your total project cost is between £1.5K and the upper limit of £5K match funding is required and must be secured before you apply.

Projects must be located within the Leicester-shire and Rutland area and you must also be located in the funding area of the wider Mick George Community Fund. Some areas in North West Leicestershire, Hinckley & Bosworth and Charnwood are excluded. If your application is located within one of the red shaded areas within the main boundary, unfortunately you do not qualify as your project is not located within 10 miles of a licensed landfill site.
