Money available from Mars Milk Play Fund

Fri 2 May 2014

MARS Milk (“a Mars a day helps you work, rest and play”) is seeking to encourage people to play more sport with the launch of  the MARS Milk Play Fund.

The fund, which will be open from 1 May through 30 September, will donate cash awards to sports individuals and clubs in need of extra funding, whether they need new kit, help with travel costs, extra pitch time or competition entry fees.

Each month, ten deserving applicants will be selected to receive a donation of £300.  There will also be a £1,000 award for the monthly People’s Choice award, where the public can vote for their favourite individual, club or team.

Help in tough times

Michelle Frost, spokesperson for MARS Milk, said: “Unfortunately, the tough economic climate has meant that less funding is available for sports individuals and clubs.  Our hope is that the fund will help clubs to recruit new members and encourage sporty individuals to play for longer.”

The fund is open to residents of, and clubs and organisations based in, the UK and Republic of Ireland only.  Applicants must be 18 years or over and only one application will be accepted per person, club or organisation.

Applications to the fund can be made on the MARS Milk website ( from 1 May 2014.
