The Club will shortly submit to the Football Foundation an application for grant funding towards the purchase of urgently needed new grass cutting mowers.
The maximum grant from the Foundation is 75% of the total cost of any new equipment which in our case would be a maximum grant of £15,000 out of a total purchase cost of £20,000. The minimum balance of £5000 must be found by the Club through what is called ‘partnership funding’ and must be outside of any monies which the Club might itself have.
We are happy to announce that with help and support we believe that we have reached our first target of £5000 as shown
County Councillor John Berry – Locality Budget – £750
Cullompton Town Council – £500
Tesco Community Fund – £1500 (provisional)
Cullompton Youth Football Section – £500
Cullompton Rangers Supporters Section – £1750
We will continue to seek further funding help to cover a possibility that any Football Foundation grant might be less than the 75% applied for but in meantime we say a big thank you to those who have helped so far.
