Hello everyone and welcome to the 45th edition of our PRO-ACTIVE South London Newsletter.
This month has seen the opening of nominations for the 2011 PRO-ACTIVE London Awards for Sport and Physical Activity, your opportunity to acknowledge and say 'thank you' to those who continue to contribute to Sport and Physical Activity across London.
You can nominate via the web at www.pro-activelondonawards.org using our online nomination system, or you can also nominate by post, fax or phone - more details will follow later in this newsletter - nominations close at 5pm on 2nd March so submit yours as soon as you can!
The Daily Telegraph have also launched their Sport for You grant in partnership with RBS - a chance for community sports clubs to apply for a £1000 grant, again more details can be found in the news section below.
Sport England have also relaunched the Sportsmatch programme, which brings additional funding to not-for-profit organisations who have secured sponsorship to deliver new projects to get people playing and enjoying sport. Grants from £1,000 up to £100,000 are available to match sponsorship from the commercial sector, private individuals or charitable trusts.
Clubs, voluntary organisations, sports governing bodies, councils, schools and universities can get their applications in now, and the first awards will be made in early April - see the relevant news item below for further details.
We hope you enjoy this issue of our newsletter!
