South Shields Tri Secures Funding

South Shields Tri has secured funding via Sport England’s Return to Play-Small Grant Program. During 2020, the triathlon season was cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. As a result, South Shields Tri applied for the Return to Play- Small Grant Program which aims to “support projects addressing the challenges coronavirus (COVID-19) has posed to people taking part in sport and physical activity”. Helen Hartley and Sarah Bezuidenhout have worked behind the scenes to secure this funding, which will help South Shields Tri train new coaches and purchase new equipment for future events.

Helen Hartley, who played a key role in securing the funding, said “I am so pleased to help secure funding for a club that I trained and race for, looking forward to what the future holds for the club”

South Shields Tri is a triathlon club based in the North East of England, Go Tri Organiser of the year 2019 and a Bronze Trimark club.
