A SPORT funding initiative has been set up to ensure communities in North Somerset can also get to celebrate the Olympics.

The Community Games programme is looking for small, local, voluntary and community organisations to come forward for which funding would make a big difference.

The fund, launched by the West of England Sport Trust (Wesport) and Quartet Community Foundations, is open to applicants in North Somerset, Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire to ensure the Olympic and Paralympic legacy is not confined to London.

Community games is keen that the core values of London 2012 and accepted bids should reflect the values of the Olympics including equality, determination, friendship and respect.
