Sport Bedford has a small fund to which competing teams are able
to apply to help with the costs of sending a team to Bamberg. Sport
Bedford has a process in place for the awarding of support from
this fund, and it requests that applications are made, once contact
has been made with you from Bamberg (i.e. once it is clear that
there is a corresponding club in Bamberg for you to compete with).
If you have any queries about the fund or application process, you
can contact the Sport Bedford treasurer, Mr Jim Lloyd
