Support Funding for Bowls Clubs - further advice from Pauline Wilson, SCGBA Development Officer

"Energize hosted a webinar event to talk clubs through what there was in support funding terms in this Coronavirus period - and the powerpoint presentation is attached as a file with all the funding options.

All of us will have lost bar income & are paying some fixed costs so it is definitely worth looking into - 

At least 3 clubs have received £10,000 from Shropshire CC just by completing their simple questionnaire (and at least 2 from Telford & Wrekin Council)

I would urge secretaries/treasurers to start looking into this & completing the forms if you haven’t already done so.

Additionally, flood damage funding is still available & at least one club (Old Shrewsbury) has benefited substantially by completing the forms.

Don’t lose out when a little effort can pay big dividends."
