Frome Activities & Sports Trust
Grants to support activities and sports in Frome


2012 saw the first Frome Half Marathon. In 2017, the organisation changed and the seeds of FAST were sown, created to encourage activities and sports in Frome through grants generated by the profits from the Half Marathon.

You can apply for a grant if you:

  • Are a voluntary organisation run by unpaid volunteers.

  • Are open to all and not selective in your membership.

  • Offer individuals/groups the opportunity to take part in a sport or activity where access to such an opportunity may otherwise be restricted.

  • The sport or activity you offer takes place within the BA11 postcode.


Apply for a Grant

If you fit the criteria, then you can apply for a FAST grant.
