Active Cheshire is delighted to announce the launch of their 'Movers & Shakers' fund, which has been put in place to support town/parish councils, community groups, schools and businesses to encourage people to be more active. They are offering up to £500 to any group/organisation who anticipate a community gathering of more than 100 people within the boundary of Cheshire and Warrington.

Existing events (festivals, fetes etc.) are eligible.

Active Cheshire
What do we expect in return for the grant? We're looking for applicants to tell us how they'd intend to 'activate' their event — (i.e. encourage people to get active whilst having fun). This could be a fun competition, a walk, an egg and spoon race, a football match, dancing or even a space hopper race.

In return for the funding, you'll be required to promote your event under Active Cheshire's 'Movers & Shakers' banner, capture images/footage to share with us and provide details of the number of participants engaging in activities. Events must be insured, be willing to adopt the 'Movers & Shakers' branding within their communications and allow us a space at the event to promote getting active locally.

Funding is competitive and will be allocated to more than 25 events across Cheshire and Warrington. Our panel will meet on 20th March to decide on successful applicants. So if you're planning a community fun day, a corporate or charity event and feel that participants could benefit from getting more active, please get in touch or complete the form below.

Go to the website and complete the form via this link

Ed:"This is a great opportunity to get extra funds to encourage people to be more active but your application needs to be in by 20th March."
"Also make sure you let Tarvinonline know how you get on so that you get the maximum publicity for your event!"
