Stevenson Delighted By Lottery Cash For Banff & Buchan Projects

Banff & Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement that three projects in Banff & Buchan have received a combined total of £22,101 from the Big Lottery Fund.

The Peterhead Sea Cadets have been awarded £8,772 to provide various activities for young people between 10 and 18 years old. The Banff Community Small Schools Sailing Initiative has received £4,779 to arrange introductory sailing lessons for primary school pupils in the local area. Meanwhile, Brighter Horizons has received £8,550 to fund a programme of activities for young people in and around Banff.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“It is excellent news that these three projects have received funding to support their future activities in Banff & Buchan. These sums will make a significant difference to what can be delivered for the young people who benefit from these projects and I know will be welcome news to people in the local communities.

“The money for the Sea Cadets in Peterhead and the Small Schools Sailing Initiative in Banff will help train a new generation of sailors in the area, something that has a long and proud tradition in Banff & Buchan. Meanwhile, the money Brighter Horizons is receiving will help provide a greater range of activities for young people in and around Banff.

“I am delighted by this news and I am sure that it will be welcomed by everyone involved in these projects too”.
