Stevenson Hails Funding Boost For Banff Sports Club

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement that the Princess Royal Sports & Community Trust in Banff is to receive £1914 from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme. The funding will be used to fund dance & fitness coaching, hockey pitch hire & coaching, table tennis coaching and fishing trips.

2014 Communities is a micro grants programme, offering local sports clubs, voluntary and community organisations, community councils and schools grants of £300 to £2,000 to support and stimulate grass roots involvement in sport and physical activity and is about building a legacy of well-being before and beyond the Commonwealth Games.  The programme aims to encourage more people to take part or volunteer in sport or physical activity as well as encourage greater community cohesion in the run up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“This is a fantastic boost for Princess Royal Sports & Community Trust and I know that many people will already be looking forward to the activities that the funding will allow the Trust to offer.

“The Princess Royal Sports & Community Trust plays an important role in the Banff community and I know that this funding boost will be welcomed by people throughout the area.

“The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in two years will be a fantastic occasion, but it is important that communities across Scotland benefit from the event’s legacy. Encouraging more people to take up sporting activities is an important part of that, so I am delighted that this funding will be put to that purpose in Banff.”
