OK DS since you ask:

Who? The funding will be put towards venue hire, coaches fees and possible website design and maintenance.

Where? In Scotland. Training sessions will be held in various locations around the country.

What? The funding comes from Scottish Fencing. Scottish Fencing is mainly funded by SportScotland and the members of Scottish Fencing through membership fees.

Why? Because the board of Scottish Fencing decided that this would be a good way to spend some of its income. The main aims of the programme are:

1. To improve the standard of U14 fencing in Scotland.
2. To increase the number of U14 fencers competing at epee and sabre in Scotland.
3. To retain more fencers in the sport beyond the age of 14.

How? Not sure I understand what you mean by this question!
