Colin Stears, Chairman of the Adult Services & Health Committee, said:
“Community clubs are a vital part of Sutton’s sporting life. Whether it’s helping our young people achieve their sporting dreams or getting older people more active, they do an amazing amount of work. There’s still time to apply for funds and I hope lots of clubs do just that.”
