Wave Leisure Trust Limited (Wave) the not-for-profit Trust and Social Enterprise which promotes health, wellbeing and active lifestyles across East Sussex, has completed its tenth year of grant funding to community projects.
In 2017, Wave’s Community Fund was set at £3,000 and invited local individuals and community organisations to apply for a grant of up to £500, with the criteria being that it will inspire and support the development of active lifestyles in the Lewes District area.
The lucky recipients of the 2017 funding round are:
Up the Tempo Dance School who will host a community dance event.

Dan Chambers, Finance Support Manager at Wave who manages the Fund said: “Every year we receive a large amount of fantastic applications from community groups wishing to organise activities in the local area, but the stumbling block is funding. So, here at Wave, we enable the community to carry out these activities all of which help to inspire healthy lifestyles – in keeping with our business aims and objectives – resulting in a much healthier community for all ages, due to increased participation.”
