COLLEGES with sixth form or post-16 provision in Northumberland are invited to bid for a share of £5.8million in National Lottery funding.

The second round of Sport England’s Further Education Activation Fund is now open for applications. The organisation’s Active People Survey shows that students at colleges play the least sport of students aged 16 and over.

Its Director of Community Sport, Mike Diaper, said: “This fund will help colleges provide practical, innovative, affordable and attractive sporting opportunities that fit in with their busy lifestyles.”

The deadline for applications is January 20. More information online:
