Prudential RideLondon – Surreygrants available from London Marathon Charitable Trust
Following the success of the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 2013, I have the pleasure of providing you details of the London Marathon Charitable Trust and the grants available to recreational projects in Surrey.
As you may know, Prudential RideLondon-Surreyis organised by London & SurreyCycling Partnership LLP and one of the partners is The London Marathon Limited. All of the profits of The London Marathon Limited are passed to its parent company, the London Marathon Charitable Trust, a registered charity.
The Trust makes grants to recreational projects in areas in which events are held, as a tangible thank you for the support of those communities. Since the London Marathon began, over £45m has been allocated by the London Marathon Charitable Trust to recreational projects.
It is now able to make grants for projects in Surrey and although in the first year of the event there have been no profits, the Trustees will still consider making grants to qualifying projects. Although funding is available for any qualifying projects throughout Surrey, priority will be given to those immediate areas close to the events.
Details of eligibility, criteria and how to apply can be found on the application form attached. More information can also be found here.
