FORMER England cricket captain Mike Gatting is urging grassroots sports teams to sign up to raise extra cash through the Gift Aid scheme.

He joined Sport England representatives in supporting website JustGiving to launch a partnership that will make it easier for small clubs to raise cash.

Justgiving for Sports Clubs is a free service for amateur clubs. It is hoped that across England the system will bring an extra £22million into sports over five years, by recuperating tax money through Gift Aid.

Mike Gatting said: "Fundraising for sports clubs can be time-consuming and daunting, and takes volunteers away from what they do best - running sport.

"JustGiving for sport clubs could really make a difference by helping clubs raise more money for sport in a quick and simple way.
