Newport-based Brace’s Bakery has announced the teams that will receive a slice of £10k as part of its Community Sport Fund.The family-owned bakery launched its Community Sport Fund in April and invited sports groups across south-east Wales and the Valleys to apply for small grants of £250-£500.Of the 370 teams that applied, the £10k helped 22 teams in the local area, ranging from rugby and football to horse riding and lawn bowls. The successful clubs cater for all ages, backgrounds and interests and are the very definition of community sport.From new kits and training equipment to coaching qualifications and a new scoreboard, the grants will cover the costs of making changes to help the clubs go from strength to strength.Scott Richardson, Brace’s chief executive, said: “We pride ourselves on doing everything we can to help our local community and have loved running our first ever Community Sport Fund.“We had an overwhelming response to the Fund and picking the final teams was a really hard decision; we wish we could have sponsored them all, but we hope those that were unsuccessful this time will apply again next year.”The 22 successful teams were announced earlier this month on Brace’s website and social media.
