First published in Sport News

Do you know a talented youngster who needs a financial boost to take them to the next level of their sport?

If so the Wiltshire Times would like to hear from you so we can put them forward for a grant of up to £500.

We have joined forces with Devizes-based Bag4Sport Foundation to help nurture talent and help youngsters pay for coaching, kit or travelling costs.

You can nominate your own child, a pupil you teach or a youngster you coach but we will need to know why they need help and their achievements to date.

Any youngster up to the age of 16 can be nominated but they must not already be receiving a grant from the Lottery or their sporting body.

We will pick two winners and two runners-up from different towns in the Wiltshire Times circulation area.

More information is available on the Bag4Sport website bag4sport.co.uk or the website wiltshiretimes.co.uk.

Look out for the nomination form in your Wiltshire Times each week (left) or email foundation@bag4sport.co.uk with your nominations and reasons why. The closing date for nominations is July 31, 2014.

Bag4Sport Foundation is trying to make a difference to the lives of people of all ages by holding fundraising events and making grants.

The latest organisation to receive cash was Devizes Opportunity Centre which caters for children from birth to five years old with a wide range of special needs.

The money was raised by the Goughs Solicitors team which competed in a 24 hour spin-a-thon at Route2Fitness gym back in February.

Events:

May 29: Charity golf day, North Wilts Golf Club

June 7: Ben Nevis Challenge.

July 13: London 10K

August 2-4: Devizes to Paris cycle ride
