BRADFORD Disability Sports & Leisure – which runs clubs and activities for disabled people across the district – is among 20 non-profit organisations to share in a cash boost.

Grants totalling £82,000 have been awarded by West Yorkshire Combined Authority to support projects encouraging people to walk and cycle more.

The funding has been made available through the authority’s CityConnect programme.

West Yorkshire mayor, Tracy Brabin, said: “It is a key priority and election pledge of mine to ensure that as a region we focus on accessibility, inclusivity, diversity and equality in all our funding decisions. The community grants scheme is a brilliant example of putting this vision into action.

“The 20 fantastic projects benefitting from this funding will support people in their communities who need it the most, using walking and cycling as a way to improve people’s experience of living in those areas.”
