Stevenson Welcomes Lottery Funding Boost for Local Projects

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed a total of £19,000 from the National Lottery’s small grants scheme Awards for All for two groups in his constituency.

Buchanhaven Primary School has received a £10,000 Awards for All grant which they will use to buy stage curtains, audience seating, stage equipment and a loop sound system, so that lunchtime and after school clubs can get involved in performing arts, and so that the school can put on shows for the community.

An Awards for All grant of £9,000 has also been given to Royal Tarlair Golf Club. They plan on using the money to refurbish the club’s existing rundown toilet provision, and install a dedicated disabled access facility in the organisation’s club house.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted to welcome this funding for these two very worthwhile projects in my constituency. The award for Buchanhaven Primary School will benefit the whole community as it will be able to put on shows and encourage youngsters to get involved in performing.


“This will also be a great summer boost for Royal Tarlair Golf Club as they will be able to improve their facilities and create a more modernised club house for the players.”

Across Scotland, 169 groups are sharing Lottery funding totalling £1,294,236 in this latest tranche of grants. An Awards for All spokesperson added:

“These grants totalling over £1.2 million will benefit over 160 groups across the country. Awards for All proves that the smallest amounts of funding can often make the biggest difference to people’s lives.

“Once again, it’s great to see so many small groups coming forward with the aim of making a difference to their local communities.”
