Disability sport funding from BT and the Telegraph

5 August 2014

The British Paralympic Association has announced the launch of BT’s 25th Birthday Bursary Fund to celebrate it’s 25th Anniversary.

When the British Paralympic Association was founded in 1989, BT was a partner from the start and has continued to support disability sport right through to today. BT has now teamed up with the Telegraph to create the Birthday Bursary fund which totals £25,000.

To help celebrate the 25 years, BT has invited the general public to nominate a sports club to receive one of five awards of £5,000. It is open to any sports club in the UK which offers significant opportunities for participation in disability sport.

The judging panel includes Suzi Williams, marketing and brand director for BT, the Telegraph's Gareth A. Davies, Channel 4 presenter Adam Hills and Paralympic athlete Nathan Stephens.

You are required to submit a maximum of 250 words which informs the judges of why the club you have chosen is worthy of an award, and how the £5,000 would help.

So if you would like to nominate a club which supports disability swimming at any level and could really benefit from a £5,000 cash award, make sure you fill out the nomination form on the Telegraph website.
