The Sports Challenge 2022, which took place over a five-week period, has been the most successful to-date, raising more than £50,000 more than last year. The initiative offers local grassroots groups the chance to raise thousands of pounds to subsidise membership, buy new equipment, improve facilities and provide new kit or training.
All of the money raised by each group is then match funded by TVCF.
FC Hartlepool were the overall challenge winners and received a grant of £36,474.05!
The campaign, which started as an idea between Tees Valley Community Foundation and TFM’s Cash for Kids eight years ago, has since been rolled out by every Cash for Kids in the UK. As the founding area, Teesside has reigned supreme, raising the most money and reaching more children than ever before, and is the best performing area in the UK. Take a bow, everyone!
