Bowled over by Community Grant

£20,000 community grant awarded to Mark Cricket Club

Since 2018, we have awarded £391,765 in grants to 24 local groups from the National Grid Community Grant Scheme, including sports associations, local guides and scouts, and the Mendip Hills AONB.

In the latest funding round, Mark Cricket Club was delighted to have been awarded a grant of £20,000, which it will use to start developing the club’s new ground and pavilion.

Chairman Tim Moxey said: “We’re delighted that National Grid has recognised the Club’s contribution to the local community in this way. We’ll now be able to press on with our plans to broaden the range of cricketing opportunities available to the local community and the surrounding villages.”

The Community Grant scheme is one of the ways we are supporting the communities and local people most impacted by our operations and site activities. Projects can be awarded up to £20,000.
