Stevenson Delighted at £2k for Fraserburgh Scouts

The 1st Fraserburgh Scout Group has received a £2000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities Programme just in time for Christmas.

The local Scouts will use the programme’s last tranche of funding to buy camping equipment, so that they can take more people on expeditions.

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, said:

“I am delighted that the 1st Fraserburgh Scouts have received this grant. With only weeks to go until Christmas this is the perfect present, and it will allow even more young people to enjoy Scout expeditions throughout the year. I congratulate the Scouts on their success and commend the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities Programme on recognising the good work that will now be done with this money.”

Over 150 sports clubs, schools, scout groups and voluntary organisations across Scotland are sharing in the final £260,635 from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme. Since 2008, £6.4 million has been awarded to 4180 projects that support involvement in sport and physical activity.

Maureen McGinn, chair of Big Lottery Fund Scotland, added:

“2014 Communities was the first dedicated fund to be launched in Scotland aimed at creating a legacy from the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Since November 2008, we have awarded £6.5 million to 4180 groups across Scotland. From developing grassroots sport and physical activity through to encouraging volunteering, this investment has benefited people of all ages and sporting abilities. It’s a legacy we are proud to leave behind and one which will create stronger, healthier and more sustainable communities in every one of Scotland’s local authority areas.”
