South Holland’s young people are missing out on sports because schools and clubs are failing to claim up to £40 per head to fund activities.

There’s £90,000 in the Sportivate pot for Lincolnshire, but there hasn’t been a single claim from South Holland this year.

Lucy Blakey, from Lincolnshire Sport, said: “Funding is available for sports projects in Lincolnshire to encourage semi-sporty teenagers and young adults between 11 and 25 to take part in sport.

“It is a great opportunity to encourage young people to get involved in sport but also provides a huge financial incentive for sports clubs, schools, leisure facilities and others to deliver more sport across Lincolnshire.”

She urged groups to come forward to claim the cash, saying there has been only two bids from the district since the Lottery funded scheme started in 2011.
