In an effort to increase sports participation in college students Accrington and Rossendale College (ACCROSS) have been awarded £56,610 of lottery investment from Sport England.
According to a Sport England survey, further education college students play the least amount of sport of young people aged 16 and over who are in education.
Accross have recently invested in a 3g facility to enable all weather sports and the college intend to use the grant to run a range of initiatives to increase student participation in sport.
"The grant will allow us to deliver more extra curricular activities to students at the college and build on the success of the department'" said Charlie Moss Programme Area Leader of Sport.
