Stevenson Delighted at Nearly £16K Lottery Funding for Local Organisations

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, has expressed his delight after two groups in his constituency netted a total of £15,930 in funding from the Big Lottery Fund.

Radio Buckie received a £9600 Awards For All grant from the fund which they will use to purchase items and equipment for their new community radio station.

An Awards For All grant of £6330 has also been made to Deveron Gymnastics Club from sportscotland. The club will use the cash to offer more classes, so that more young people can get involved as there is currently a waiting list. They will also train new coaches and further enable existing coaches.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I am very happy for both of the groups in my constituency that have received nearly £16,000 between them to help them in what they do in our community.

“Radio Buckie was an excellent idea from the outset and it continues to develop and grow as a great local asset. I hope this added funding will further its ambition as a way of strengthening community spirit.

“The Deveron Gymnastics Club has proved very popular and I am delighted that with this extra funding more children will be able to train and find their feet in gymnastics from an early age.”

Across the country, 165 community groups are sharing National Lottery funding worth £1,172,315.

An Awards for All spokesperson, added:

“We have announced over £1 million that will support projects helping to improve the lives of hundreds of people in communities across Scotland. All of the grants awarded show the variety of projects that can be funded through Awards For All and how even the smallest amounts of money can make the biggest difference.”
