We are extremely grateful to be awarded a part of the £453,200 extra funding distributed by UK Sport!
On March 4th 2021, UK Sport announced that an additional £453,200 would be awarded to four national governing bodies in support of them recovering from the adverse financial impact of COVID-19. Below is the breakdown of the grant:
- British Basketball Federation – £87,700
- England Hockey – £317,500
- Goalball UK – £22,000
- Pentathlon GB – £26,000
Mark Winder, Goalball UK CEO responded to this outlining our gratitude to support the GB Men’s squad in their preparations for the 2021 IBSA European B Championship scheduled for 31st May – 7th June:
“Goalball UK are very grateful for this support. As a governing body, not in receipt of World Class Funding from UK Sport, we have been reliant on philanthropic giving. The pandemic has made it increasingly difficult to attract this funding. Without this support our Men’s team would be in danger of not being able to prepare or attend the European Championships”.
