NORTHERN Ireland’s Little Wing Pizzeria is encouraging local sport teams to get a slice of the action by applying for the Little Wing’s Little Sports Stars scheme which will see £2,500 up for grabs.
The new bursary programme is open to sporting clubs located nearby each of Little Wing’s five branches: Holywood, Bangor, Ann Street, Belfast, Lisburn Road, Belfast and Ballyhackamore*.
The bursaries will be available to clubs coaching children under 12 years old and five teams will be awarded with a £500 bursary.
To apply for the bursary scheme, sports clubs simply need to write a 300 word explanation of why they need the bursary and what it will be used for and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org before the closing date of Friday September 19.
Commenting on the sports bursaries, Luke Wolsey, Managing Director of Little Wing Pizzeria said:
“Little Wing has five highly successful branches in Northern Ireland and we are always looking for opportunities to give back to the community by supporting local schools, clubs and charities so the Little Wing’s Little Sports Stars bursaries are an extension of this support.
“Throughout the year we get a lot of requests from children’s sports clubs to help them with sponsorship so we decided to launch this programme to give all local clubs an equal chance of being granted additional funding. “I would encourage all clubs that are interested to apply for a bursary which can be put towards anything the club needs financial assistance with such as new sporting kits, equipment or even to go towards the general costs of running the club.”
Little Wing is part of the Beannchor Group, Ireland’s largest hospitality group, which boasts a portfolio of over 50 pubs, hotels and restaurants across Northern Ireland.
