Stewart Hosie, MP for Dundee East, congratulates three local groups on securing a total of £29,375 National Lottery funding after applying to the National Lottery Awards for All Scotland.
Firstly, 53rd Angus (1st Newbigging) Scout Group received a £9,400 grant from Big Lottery Fund, which will be used to upgrade and improve facilities available at their scout hut and to purchase a box trailer for transporting outdoor equipment.
Braeview Academy also recently received a £9,975 award, which the school will use for a range of sports equipment to facilitate the launch of new sports clubs at the school and develop the capacity of their existing clubs. The project will also provide development training to pup sports leaders, who will be involved in delivering the project.
Finally, Tayside Council On Alcohol, who provide information and support to individuals and families affected by alcohol and substance misuse, has recently secured a £10,000 Awards for All grant. This project will use the award to continue the funding for their youth support groups which were being funded by Young Start.
Mr Hosie commented:
“This is great news - it is always fantastic to see local organisations receiving a well-earned boost. The sum of money awarded to all of these organisations is an incredible amount and will hopefully go far to helping ensure their programmes are a success.
“I have written to all of the groups separately congratulating them and I look forward to the opportunity to visit the programmes to see the great benefit they bring to our communities across the constituency.”
