The MARS Refuel Drink Fund is opening again to offer sports fanatics the chance to get their hands on some funding.
The fund, which opens for applications on August 23, has £10,000 to donate to clubs and individuals in need of a sporting boost
Michelle Frost, from MARS Chocolate Drinks and Treats: “The fund has already helped more than 10,000 people to play for longer and with so many popular sports, such as hockey, football and netball about to kick off for the season, we feel this is a great time to reopen the fund.”
Applications for the £500 awards can be made online at www.marsrefuel.com. The fund offers support with anything from equipment costs, to improving training grounds and club houses. The fund is also open to individuals raising money for charity through sporting activities, such as bike rides, mountain climbing and parachute jumps.
The fund will be accepting applications until October 31 2010.
The fund is open to residents of, and clubs and organisations based in the UK and Republic of Ireland only. Applicants must be 12 years or over and only one application will be accepted per person, club or organisation.

About Mars Refuel
With the unique MARS taste of chocolate, malt and caramel, MARS Refuel chocolate milk drink is a delicious way to refuel whenever you need a pick-me-up.
Scientists at Northumbria University completed a study investigating the effect of MARS Refuel drink. It proved that cyclists who drank MARS Refuel after exercise could continue for up to 50% longer in a second exercise session. This is because MARS Refuel has a 4:1 ratio of carbohydrates and proteins.
