“A year on from the Olympics, this National Lottery investment is helping us deliver a lasting sporting legacy in Cumbria.
“With investment now on offer from our Inspired Facilities Fund until 2017, we look forward to supporting many more sports clubs in the Cumbria region who play such a vital role in grassroots sports.”
