The Pickaquoy Centre Trust (PCT) Sponsorship programme is available to sports clubs, individual athletes, third sector organisations and art groups. The aim of the programme is to give individuals or groups discounted access to sports facilities, training opportunities or room hire that promote skills development and acknowledge hard work and commitment.
The programme will provide financial support of up to £500 per applicant and run on a two phase tranche period with the first tranche having run from 1 April 2018 – 30 September 2018. The second period, running from 1 October 2018 – 31 March 2019 is now open for applications.
Successful applicants will not be awarded more than one sponsorship in a 12-month period. However, qualifying candidates that applied for the first tranche but were unsuccessful are welcome to resubmit their application.
The Pickaquoy Centre is committed to community development and growth across the county and aims for the programme to be as inclusive as possible including sports related organisations, the third sector and art groups. Support can be given in the form of access to meeting rooms or event spaces, membership opportunities, training and more. Cash sponsorship will be carefully considered but applicants must provide accurate figures and details of how the assistance will support the group or individual.
The aim of the programme is to provide support that is unique to The Pickaquoy Centre Trust, therefore applicants applying for travel costs and competition fees outwith Orkney will not be eligible.
We expect to receive many applications, so request that applicants are as thorough as possible when completing the form. It is important that each applicant refer to the Application Guidance notes accompanying the application when completing the form.
To be considered for the second tranche, applications must be submitted by Sunday, 9 September 2018. Questions can be directed to our Marketing Deparment.
You can download the application in PDF format to be submitted by post, or fill out the downloadable Word document to submit by email. Applications should be directed to the Marketing Department or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
