RideLondon’s £3.3million boost for Surrey good causes

The total awarded to community groups thanks to Surrey’s role in Prudential RideLondon is now more than £3.3million.

In 2019 alone, more than £400,000 worth of grants has been awarded – including £150,000 towards the installation of an artificial grass pitch for multi-sport use at Cobham Rugby and Sports Association and £70,000 towards improvements to Claygate Scout Centre.

Denise Turner-Stewart, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety, Fire and Resilience, said: “It’s great news that so many of our grassroots clubs and organisation will enjoy long-lasting benefits thanks to Surrey’s involvement in the Prudential RideLondon cycling festival. The events continue to showcase Surrey’s stunning landscapes to the world and promote all the benefits of cycling, including to people’s health and wellbeing.”

The London Marathon Charitable Trust awards grants to recreational projects in areas where London Marathon Events Ltd organises events as a way of thanking communities for their support. Details of how to apply are on The Trust’s website.

Full details of the grants awarded since the inaugural RideLondon-Surrey events in 2013 are available here and here.

Prudential RideLondon returns to Surrey for a seventh year on Sunday 4 August. For more details, visit the organiser’s website.
