Sports clubs in Clydebank can now apply for up to £2,500 of funding from an improved Scottish sport fund.

Supermarket giant Aldi have launched their Scottish Sport Fund for the fifth year running, and clubs from grassroots football teams to after school groups across West Dunbartonshire can now apply for a range of funding options to suit their needs – with one lucky club being in with a chance of securing a £2,500 funding boost.

The fund is an initiative to help people of all ages take part in physical activity within their local communities by giving clubs the chance to secure funding.
Almost 400 clubs across Scotland have benefitted from the funds since 2016, helping to improve community access to sports across the country.
