To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport how much Legacy Trust UK has awarded in grants since its establishment. (254433)

The Legacy Trust UK was established with a £40 million endowment from the Big Lottery Fund, the Arts Council England and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport to support a wide range of innovative cultural and sporting activities for all, which celebrate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games and leave a lasting legacy in communities throughout the United Kingdom.

Since LTUK was established, a total of £22,433,000 has been awarded in grants. This is split between UK school games, an annual sporting competition based on an Olympic games model with multiple sports events held across an intensive four-day period for elite school age athletes, and the UK regions and nations.
