Aberdeenshire Clubsport £100 grant

We are pleased to have been awarded a grant of £100 from Aberdeenshire Clubsport (https://www.scottishclubsport.co.uk/club/45) to help cover the additional costs of running events with Covid requirements.  We have invested in a contactless payment system and bought all the necessary PPE. 
Good to have some financial support to back up the work our volunteers have been doing to keep events running.
Thank you.

Aberdeenshire Clubsport SCIO website lists the wide variety of sports supported and tells you a bit about their activities: “[It] is managed and run by volunteers from the local sporting community who bring with them a wide range of knowledge, skills and expertise. We work to encourage, develop and promote all sport and physical activity, providing advice, support and assistance to affiliated clubs/organisations and always look for continuous improvement to ensure quality services are always offered. We are keen to support grass root developments and minority sports, as well as the major sports.

ACS SCIO achieved charitable status in 2020 with the support of Buchan Development Partnership and exists to represent member clubs/organisations. It is one of the most progressive and active sports councils in the country.

ACS SCIO currently has a board of 6 Trustees and an Executive Committee with capacity for 18 volunteer representatives, 2 of which are youth representatives, from many different affiliated sports clubs/organisations. We work closely in partnership with the Aberdeenshire Council, Aberdeenshire Disability Sport, Sportscotland, Active Schools, Scottish Clubsport and a range of Scottish Governing Bodies.

We have one of the largest memberships in Scotland, with our membership encompassing an enormous range of sports clubs that vary greatly in size, numbers, abilities and interests, with 50 sports and physical activities represented. However, whether large or small, all share the same need to be well organised forward thinking to ensure strong, successful clubs in years to come.”
