Stevenson Delighted at £33k for Banffshire and Buchan Coast

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast, is delighted that five groups in his constituency have secured £33,789 of funding from Awards for All Scotland.

The largest award of £9,400 has been given to Fraserburgh Sea Cadets Unit No 419 TS Gowanlea, from which they will buy four new sailing boats and trolleys.

Deveron Canoe Club have been awarded £9,000 from the Big Lottery grant scheme sportscotland, which they will use to invest in canoeing equipment to further develop Canoe Polo in the North East.

The Peterhead branch of the Royal Air Forces Association has been granted £8,181, and this will be used by the group to travel to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

Girl Guiding Banff and Buchan has been given a £5,000 grant, and this will pay for a group of adult leaders to attend a weekend training course at the Girl Guide’s training centre, and to purchase IT equipment.

Banffshire Partnership Limited has been awarded £2,208, and this funding will go towards running a lunch club for isolated older people.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I am absolutely delighted that my constituency will benefit from £33,789 from the Big Lottery Fund and sportscotland through the Awards for All programme.

“For local groups to develop and expand with increasing membership and interest from the local community, grants like these are vital. Both young people and the older generation benefit from this recent tranche of funding and I wish all of these groups the very best as they face the future with a recognition of what they are doing for their local communities.”

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.

An Awards for All spokesperson, added:

“We are announcing over £1,342,066 that will help communities Scotland wide to set up and develop projects run for and by local people. What is clear is the smallest amount of funding can often make the biggest difference to people’s lives. All of these grants are a great way to show the variety of projects that can be funded through Awards for All.”
