Stevenson Welcomes Funding Awards for Banffshire Groups

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast has today welcomed the news that two community groups in the Banffshire and Buchan Coast constituency are to receive Awards for All Scotland funding from the Big Lottery Fund totalling £13,340.

1st Cornhill Scout Group (£3700) and Friends of Cluny Primary (£9640) were both beneficiaries and have commendable plans for the money.

Awards for All Scotland is supported by the Creative Scotland, Sportscotland and the Big Lottery Fund and awards grants of between £500 and £10,000 to grass-roots community groups and voluntary organisations which promote education, the environment and health in the local community. Today, the program announced it would be awarding £1,293,726 to 173 deserving organisations across Scotland.

Mr Stevenson has written to both of the groups within his constituency who were successful in their application and is hopeful that this funding will support them, and allow them to develop their activities which are of great importance to the local community.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to see these local groups successfully applying for and securing the available funding in order to further support and develop their goals.

“These groups are similarly working towards enriching the lives of our local youth. I am glad to see the funding go to such a deserving cause.

 “I would encourage any and all eligible groups in the area to apply to Awards for All and enter the running for a grant to help them in continuing their activities, whatever they may be.”
