Sporting chance for women in Benidorm

LOCAL sports clubs will be eligible for a stake in a €90,000 subsidy to promote women’s sport in Benidorm. 
A town hall committee has now approved the conditions to be met by the sports clubs and associations with sportswomen and women’s teams, announced Marilo Cebreros, Benidorm’s councillor responsible for sport. 
This will be the first time that the town hall has helped women’s sport in general, as until now grants have been made directly to specific clubs or teams, Cebreros said. 
“With this formula we are making financial help available to all clubs in Benidorm and, what’s more, guaranteeing total equality and maximum transparency,” the councillor added.  
“Funding will be allocated according to previously established requirements set out in the terms and conditions.”   
Grants will be pegged to a limit of €15,000 per club or body and must be used to cover the cost of activities, projects and programmes that are aimed at promoting and encouraging women’s sport, Cebreros explained.
