Olympic medallist Natasha Danvers will help announce community sports projects in the region which are to benefit from Olympic legacy funding of nearly 1 million pounds. 17 community groups will split the money from Sport England. They are part of 377 community sport projects across the UK.
The money comes from Sport England's Inspired Facilities Fund which is part of a 20 million pound legacy programme.
Every sports facility that receives funding will carry the London 2012 Inspire mark.
