Stevenson Urges Nominations For National Lottery Awards

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson is urging local groups who have benefited from lottery funding to participate in the National Lottery Awards. 

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“The National Lottery Awards will recognise the public’s favourite Lottery funded projects and celebrate the amazing impact that Lottery funding has had around the UK.  Last year’s Awards proved very successful with over 750 projects entered or nominated and I therefore urge all successful applicants to enter this marvellous scheme.

“There is no doubt that Lottery funding can have a huge positive effect upon communities and this is the ideal opportunity to celebrate this fact and to search for the most inspiring people and projects.

“All successful Lottery applicants, whether big or small, should enter so that they can share their success story and show how they have made a positive difference.

“Criteria for entry is that individuals or projects must have been awarded and used Lottery funding and only completed projects and those which can demonstrate public benefit can be considered.  The main beneficiaries of the project must be based in the UK and any projects that applied last year but were unsuccessful are welcome to enter again this year.

“I welcome this Awards Scheme and would be proud to see appropriate organisations from my constituency participating.  It is always nice to get the chance to celebrate success and for effort to be given recognition.

“Good luck to all nominees.”
