Olympic Funding Fears

As it emerged that local Olympic celebrations will not receive financial support, Dave is hopeful that at least “match funding” may be obtained.

Despite the North-East losing lottery money that has been diverted to the Olympics, it seems that the government is closing the door on local events getting any help.

Dave said,

“I think we have great potential, especially in Newcastle and Gateshead, to do some wonderful events in the build up to the games. I am hopeful that if we can put something impressive together that maybe we can ask for at least some match-funding for this.”
