I welcome the announcement that Hartpury College has been awarded a £340,162 grant by the Football Foundation. This grant will mean that Hartpury College can replace and extend their floodlit artificial grass pitch.
I am pleased that Hartpury College has been awarded this money. I have visited the college on a number of occasions and I have always been impressed by their world class sporting provision. This has made the college a destination of choice for athletes from across Gloucestershire and around the world.
The Football Foundation is a unique charitable partnership between the Premier League, The FA and Government (Via Sport England). The Football Foundation has given out £1.5 billion in funding since its creation in 2000.
