Lancashire projects which aim to get more people playing sport are being invited to bid to a new £40 million Sport England fund.

National Lottery funding will be invested through the Community Sport Activation Fund to support grassroots activity.

It is part of Sport England’s strategy to deliver a lasting sporting legacy from last year’s successful Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Community groups, charities and councils are among those that can bid for funding for up to three years, with grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 on offer for a wide range of projects from family-friendly activities to multi-sport sessions.
