The British Judo Trust is constantly striving to enhance the development of judo throughout the UK. Last year alone, the Trust supported various projects to the value of nearly £12,000.
Many clubs and individuals have benefited from the support of the Trust, and have been able to achieve their goals and plan for their development.
For the next 12 months, the Trust will be concentrating on only supporting individuals from a deprived and disadvantaged background, with the key criteria of increasing physical activity and promotion of social interaction.
Previously, 80% of the Trust’s grants went to clubs who submitted applications. Through concentrating on supporting individuals, the Trust hopes to make a difference to needy individuals wishing to develop themselves through the sport of judo.
The Trust will still continue to run its various fundraising initiatives, including a special fundraising month, where clubs get the opportunity to organise fun ways to raise money for the Trust and their own club on a 50/50 basis.
