MARK Spencer, Sherwood’s Member of Parliament is continuing his campaign to secure extra funding for local miners’ welfares.
As part of his commitment to help make sure that Sherwood receives as much funding for improvements as possible, the MP recently found a grant scheme that is organised by Sports England. The scheme, called a Community Asset Fund, allows Miners’ Welfare organisations to apply for additional funding.
To pursue this funding, Mark recently met with Sports England in Parliament to discuss how Sherwood could secure this funding. As a result, Sports England have now stated that they will offer specialist funding workshops for Miners Welfare organisations.
Mark is now pushing to ensure that these workshops take place as close to Sherwood as possible, to ensure that any of our local organisations can go along.
Discussing his campaign, Mark said:
“Great news that we’ve managed to secure these specialist funding workshops to help Miners’ Welfares secure some extra funding. I’m now pushing to make sure these happen in Sherwood, or at the very least, as close to Sherwood as possible to make sure that our Welfares have a good chance when it comes to applying for this funding.”
“As always, if you’ve got any questions about this, just get in touch.”
Mark also advised that he puts regular updates up on his Facebook page, which can be found at www.facebook.com/MarkSpencerSherwood.
