Stevenson Welcomes £20K for Local Groups

Stewart Stevenson, SNP MSP for Banffshire & Buchan Coast has welcomed the news that £19,899 has been awarded from Awards for All Scotland to Boddam Primary School and to Portsoy District Community Association in his constituency.

Boddam Primary School will use their £9899 grant to develop the primary school playground.

Portsoy District Community Association plan to invest their £10,000 award in replacing the AstroTurf in the local community sports hub.

Mr Stevenson said:

“I am absolutely delighted that these two groups in my constituency will benefit from Awards for All Scotland funding totalling £19,899.

“Boddam Primary School will be able to use the money to make the playground more interesting and fun for the school pupils, and Portsoy District Community Association will make a fantastic contribution to the local sporting community by replacing the AstroTurf at the community sports hub.

“I wish them both all the very best as they proceed with this funding boost.”

The local projects are among 131 across Scotland sharing £1 million of National Lottery funding from Awards For All Scotland.

An Awards for All spokesperson added:

“Today we are announcing over £1 million that will help communities from across Scotland 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 for people of all ages.”
