UCLanSport and Lancashire Sport Partnership have joined forces once again to offer a cash boost to young sporting hopefuls from across the region.
The Lancashire Rising Star Fund gives young athletes the opportunity to receive a grant to cover costs such as travel, accommodation, training, competition fees and equipment.
On average athletes and their families can spend in excess of £5,000 per year on equipment, training, travelling and other essentials required to compete at the top level in many sports.
Each grant recipient will receive a package of support from UCLan that includes strength and conditioning services, nutritional advice and support and access to UCLan sports and training facilities.
