ASPIRING sporting stars and artistes of the future are being invited to apply for a grant from Harrogate Borough Council’s Centenary Grants Project.
This project was set up to celebrate the council’s centenary in 1984 and since then over 500 talented young people have benefited from the fund.
The council is seeking nominations from sporting or artistic young people who are 18 or under and resident in the Harrogate district, who compete or work at a regional level or above. Many of those who have received grants have gone on to national or international level.
Last year 32 talented young people received grants totalling £3,500. The disciplines ranged from swimming and violin, ballet and climbing, to taekwondo, cycling and flat green bowls.
The closing date is 29 February 2012. Applications forms and reference forms are available at www.harrogate.gov.uk/pages/harrogate-1801.aspx or by contacting Lindsay Spicer, Sports Development Officer, on 01423 556725 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
