Stevenson Welcomes £20k Lottery Funding for Banffshire and Buchan Coast

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, is delighted at the news that £20,000 has been awarded to King Edward Hall Committee and Fordyce Community Association in his constituency.

An Awards for All grant of £10,000 from Big Lottery Fund will go to the King Edward Hall Committee in Banff. The hall is used by many groups in the local community, and the funding will be used by the committee to refurbish the kitchen.

Fordyce Community Association will also benefit from a £10,000 Awards for All grant and this money will be used to finish refurbishing the village hall by improving the toilet facilities.

Mr Stevenson said:

“My congratulations go to the King Edward Hall Committee and Fordyce Community Association in my constituency, who work tirelessly to serve their community, on being rewarded with such substantial grants from the Big Lottery Fund.

“I am absolutely delighted that their efforts have produced this result and I am sure that the funding granted to them will be put to excellent use, and will enhance what they are able to achieve in the future.”

Awards For All Scotland gives groups a chance to apply for a grant of between £500 and £10,000 for projects that aim to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need. We will fund a range of projects which involve bringing local people together, helping people learn, improving local spaces and getting people more active.

Across Scotland, 103 community groups are sharing National Lottery funding worth £739,234.
