£41,305 of Lottery Funding for Inverclyde

The National Lottery Fund has been in touch this week to let me know that six groups in Inverclyde have recently been successful in applying to Awards for All Scotland, a joint programme between the Big Lottery Fund Scotland and SportScotland which 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. These six groups have secured a total of £41,305 worth of funding.

Lyle Gateway received a £6468 grant. River Clyde Homes received a £9135 grant to organise social and information events for residents aged 75 and over. Kinship for the Future Respite received a £9500 grant for their Caravan project which provides respite for members of their group. Inverclyde Academy received a £2772 grant from for new methods of physical activity outwith the curriculum such as box-a-cise and body combat. Gourock Primary School received a £3430 grant to deliver a community schools golf project in partnership with Gourock Golf Club and Inverclyde Globetrotters received a £10,000 grant.

I am glad to see this money coming to Inverclyde and benefiting such a range of projects which will bring local people together, help people learn, improve local spaces and get people more active.
