LOTTERY CASH WELCOMED FOR LOCAL GROUPS

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed news that a range of local groups and organisations have recently been successful in securing financial support from the National Lottery Community Fund. 

Roseanna said:

“I am delighted to have received confirmation from the National Lottery Community Fund that a range of local groups and organisations have been awarded significant levels of financial support that will help to deliver some really important and interesting projects.

“Although all very different, these projects are all about supporting and developing a strong sense of community and I want to congratulate everybody involved, not just for securing this funding from the National Lottery but for the vision behind these projects, and the time and energy that are invested.

“Recent months really have pulled into very sharp focus how important it is for communities to pull together.

“I note from the people at the National Lottery that, whilst some of these awards are for projects that are a direct response to the challenges posed by the impact of the global pandemic, some awards were made before the current COVID-19 crisis. 

“Where this is the case, National Lottery funding staff will be working with the organisation to facilitate any adjustments to the project that might be required. I imagine that this assistance will be of particular importance to the organisers of the Fossoway Gathering, whose plans to reinvigorate this once annual event will have been particularly affected.

“The National Lottery is stressing that it remains open for business and that all of its funding programmes are still open for applications.”
