Trafford Active Fund

The Trafford Active Fund is delivered in partnership with the Manchester Half and ‘big sister’ event the adidas Manchester Marathon. The fund aims to build a long-lasting sport and physical activity legacy in Greater Manchester, by getting residents more active, more often.

The ability to stage some of the world’s biggest sports events has brought local and international recognition that Trafford is one of the best sport and leisure destinations in the world. With top class facilities, professional clubs and fantastic mass participation events, the Manchester Half and Trafford Council are working together to harness and develop the many benefits that sport and physical activity can bring to local communities in Trafford and Greater Manchester.

£1 from every paid entry into both events goes into the Trafford Active Fund. Read about the latest projects which have enhanced the fitness and activity levels of the community in the last year here. We look forward to sharing more details of where the Trafford Active Fund continues to make a difference in due course.

The Lancashire Cricket Foundation received £2,880 to fund a new ladies walking cricket provision, with the aim to get women over 50 active.
