What is Cash 4 Clubs?
Cash 4 Clubs is a sports grants scheme which gives clubs a chance to win grants ranging from £250 to £1000, whether it be to improve facilities, purchase new equipment, gain coaching qualifications, or generally invest in the sustainability of their club.
Who is behind Cash 4 Clubs?
The Cash 4 Clubs scheme is funded by Betfair and is supported by SportsAid. Betfair and SportsAid have worked in partnership for a number of years and both organisations understand the importance of community sport in promoting an active lifestyle and stimulating local pride. Betfair’s vision is to be a champion of regional and community sport, with Cash 4 Clubs fitting in as part of its much broader community investment programme. Betfair is committed to giving money to charities and supporting sports development both in this country and overseas.

How are the grants chosen?
Grants are awarded on a quarterly basis after selection by our committee. The judges include representatives from Betfair, SportsAid, and other independent and sports committee members.
Roseland Gig Club, established in 1986, has 30 senior and 15 junior members. The clubs offers an important and needed facility for the Roseland Peninsula in Cornwall, providing an excellent amenity for all ages, abilities and backgrounds to be able to enjoy the water and learn the necessary sills of rowing and water safety.
Despite ongoing fundraising, more money was needed and the £1,000 grant allowed them to buy more lifejackets, radios and paddles for the juniors.
