Funding available for National Bike Week 2016 events in Co. Meath
Meath Local Sports Partnership in association with the Department of Transport are calling on groups and cycling clubs interested in running a cycling event to coincide with Bike Week 2016 (11th – 19th June) to apply for funding.
Bike Week is a cross-community effort to highlight cycling as a fun, cost effective and healthy way not only to travel but to be physically active.
This year Bike Week will take place from the 11th – 19th June. Events must take place during this week. Groups wishing to organise events must make provision to include non cyclists and must demonstrate additionality to existing programmes. Suitable events include mass participation cycles, beginner spins, mechanic fix`n spins etc. The types of groups which may apply are community groups, voluntary organisations, schools, sports clubs, active retirement groups, community childcare service providers, work places or any group that wishes to organise a bike related event on a ‘not for profit basis’ during Bike Week 2016.
Grants available may be somewhere in the range of €100 to €350 per successful group/event, depending on applications received and the nature of those applications.
Completed applications should be e-mailed to email@example.com or, alternatively, application forms can be posted to Bike Week Coordinator, Meath LSP, Enterprise Centre, Trim Rd, Navan, Co. Meath.
