Leeds Building Society has launched a community reward scheme to support parkrun communities.
From May 2018, and for the following 12 months, it will provide up to £25,000 to be shared across successful projects.
Applicants can ask for help with answering a need in their local parkrun community, such as funds for improvements to their local park, like playground equipment, seating for spectators or woodland walks, or help with maintaining a park, or holding a parkrun celebration.
Applicants must also be registered with parkrun and need the support of an organisation that will receive the funds for the project, such as a local charity, ‘friends of’ group or parkrun themselves.
Once an application has been received, Leeds Building Society will inform applicants within 12 weeks whether their project has been shortlisted.
