Sports clubs in West Dorset have the chance to get their hands on a share of 10 million pounds worth of funding.

The money from Sport England's Olympic Legacy fund can be spent on things like refurbishing old club houses OR buying new kit and equipment.

All funded projects will carry the London 2012 mark.

Sport England's Chair, Richard Lewis said: "Good sports facilities play an important role in local communities; they not only improve people's sporting experience but also help attract new participants. The popularity of this fund has exceeded our expectations showing an appetite from sports clubs up and down the country to celebrate the legacy the Olympic and Paralympic games."
