MSP Welcomes Funding Award for Surfing Group

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast has today welcomed the news that a local community group are to receive Awards for All Scotland funding, totalling £1844.

The Scottish Surfing Federation will purchase equipment to be use at surfing competitions held throughout the year.

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 projects which promote education, the environment and health in the local community.

Mr. Stevenson has written to congratulate Fraserburgh resident William Watson, Scottish Surfing Federation president, who was successful in the application and is hopeful that this funding will support them, and allow them to develop their activities in the local community.

Commenting, Mr. Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to see local groups, who are centres of activity in our community receiving these funds, which will serve to support them now and provide for their development in the future. Surfing is increasing in popularity and attracts a growing number of people to our coastal communities.

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