Llanelli Wrestling Club like many other sports clubs have seen the effects that Covid-19 has had on their much-loved sport, and it spurred them on to apply for the Be Active Wales Fund.
In July 2020, the club applied for funding to ‘protect’ their club, which if successful would help them with any over heads such as utility bills and uptake.
The club have now been awarded £3250 which will be such an influence to help with keeping their club going through these unprecedented times.
The grant will now be used to cover venue hire for 3 months, as well has covering their utility bills and insurance, which will be a great weight lifted off their shoulders.
If your club would like to apply for funding and require support, please get in touch with the Actif Communities Team or by visiting the COVID-19 support - Be Actif Wales Fund webpage.
Following Welsh Government’s announcement to introduce a two-week ‘firebreak’ lockdown in response to the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Wales, ALL Actif Leisure centres & outdoors sports facilities will close from 4pm* on Friday 23 October, reopening on Monday 9 November
