Funding boost for North West clubs
There was good news from Derry City & Strabane District Council last week, who approved over £42,000 in funding for NWCU clubs.
14 clubs based in the Derry & Strabane Council region were awarded funding from the Sports Recovery Fund and Pitch Maintenance Fund. The funding will help clubs with essential ground maintenance and support grassroots cricket programmes.
General Manager, Peter McCartney, praised the work of the clubs in gaining the funding support:
“It’s great news for our clubs and we are very grateful for the support of the Council. It’s a real acknowledgement of the hard work going on in our clubs that we had a 100% success rate in this round of funding applications.
It’s encouraging to see such a range of clubs getting funding and it will be much needing funding to help clubs recover from Covid.”
