Cycling Ulster Executive member, Joanna Gray is encouraging young riders in the province to apply for the Mary Peters Trust Awards before Friday 17th March.

Speaking about the latest awards cycle, Joanna said:

“The opportunity for cyclists to get a Mary Peters Trust Award for 2023 will be in this funding round. I know there are many talented young cyclists in the province who would benefit from some assistance that this award can offer.

“Last year there were 19 cyclists who applied for funding with seven being successful and awarded a total of £4000.

“Any interested Cycling Ulster member should follow the instructions for applying on the Mary Peters Trust Award website. Applications must be submitted by Friday 17th March. I wish all applicants the best of luck.” 

Full information on the Mary Peters trust and the application process can be found here.

Applications for funding must first be sent to the trust and the trust will forward to Cycling Ulster for approval.  

Finally, please note that submission of an application is not a guarantee of funding.

About Mary Peters Trust

The Mary Peters trust is Northern Ireland’s leading sporting charity. It helps young people, both disabled and able bodied, achieve sporting dreams and ambitions. Over the last several years the trust has funded several young cyclists by providing grants that enable the athlete to buy kit, travel to competitions, pay for entrance to events, help with trip costs for warm weather training or provide other funds required to reach the next level.
