Banff and Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the news a substantial sum of new lottery cash will be heading its way north announced by Awards For All.

Commenting on the announcement, Mr Stevenson said:

“My congratulations go to the four successful organisations which have been awarded lottery cash. I am certain that the organisations will put this funding to good use and I am delighted to learn that this funding will ensure the continued service of these organisations.

“It is well known that on previous occasions my constituency has found itself far from the top of the lottery funding league table. However, I continue, along with my colleague Alex Salmond MP, to ensure that we move up the table and get our fair share of the funding pie. One such way that we have achieved this was the creation of lottery surgeries which we held bringing together the main lottery bodies and made our case to secure a larger share of lottery funding for the North-east.

“I once again give my congratulations to the organisations which have benefited in this regard.”

Note: The local awards are:

Auchnagatt Playgroup £2125
Peterhead Community and Education Centre Playgroup £1394
Portsoy Primary Parents Support Group £4450
Sandhaven and Pitullie Harbour Trust £5000
Buchan Heritage Society £2500
