The London Marathon Charitable Trust has announced that it will make £5m available for charities to buy, build or renovate facilities for physical activity in London and Surrey.
The trust will give grants of anything between £5,000 and £150,000. The application deadline is 16 January.
Further information is available on the trust’s website.
Sir Rodney Walker, chair of the trust, said: “We are in the midst of a physical inactivity and obesity crisis with the long-term health and wellbeing of the population at serious risk due to the prevalence of sedentary lifestyles.
“The trust’s programme in 2018-19 aims to help tackle this crisis by providing grants to organisations that demonstrate a real commitment to engaging and supporting the whole community to be more active, more often. We encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible for funding to please get in touch.”
