MSP Welcomes Cash Boost for Community Group

A North-East community group has been given a cash-boost by the Big Lottery Fund.

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson MSP has welcomed an award of £10,000 for the Rosehearty Community Boat Club.
The funding, which is part of the National Lottery Awards for All Scotland grant, was given to the group which offers boating experiences to people of all ages.

It also offers the chance to learn craft skills development through boat building workshops.

The project will allow them to renovate their new premises which they have recently acquired and develop it into a community space.

Around 100 community groups across Scotland shared the cash injection totalling £789,456.

Commenting, Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson said:

“I am delighted the Rosehearty Community Boat Club has been awarded £10,000 towards their work.

“A number of groups in my constituency have benefited from a cash boost this year and I am thrilled another has been added to the list.

“Community groups are at the very heart of the area they serve and provide an outreach for residents to come together and learn new skills.

“This kind of investment can often be invaluable and I am very pleased to welcome the latest round of funding.”

A National Lottery Awards for All spokesperson said:

“This is National Lottery money making a real impact in communities across Scotland.

"All of these awards really showcase the variety of projects that can be funded and highlight the difference a relatively small amount of money can make.

"We wish all of these groups all the best for the festive season and the future.”
