It has been identified that clubhouse facilities at many gliding clubs are an element that discourages people joining or continuing training at some gliding clubs. We appreciate fully the challenges clubs have in maintaining the fleet and facilities whilst remaining cost-effective for members. To this end the Philip Wills Memorial Fund would like to offer the following limited opportunity to help clubs make their clubhouse arrangements more attractive.
Applications are sought for a special interest free loan for clubs wishing to renovate their clubhouse facilities. The PWMF is offering up to £10,000 interest free by way of loan. This could form an identifiable part of a larger project which may, or may not, be subject to PWMF funding at normal (low) PWMF rates.
A maximum of 3 such special loans will be awarded in 2016.
The winners will be the projects deemed most worthy by the trustees. Please submit details via our standard application form before the deadline of 31st March 2016 to be considered for this loan. The normal lending criteria of the PWMF will apply, and the trustees will notify all applicants by 30th April 2016.
