Funding for 100 projects across Scotland has been granted by National Lottery Awards for All Scotland

Lismore Community Trust is amongst the 100 groups across Scotland who learned this week that they will share £677,936 of National Lottery cash.

The funding comes from National Lottery Awards for All Scotland which makes grants from £300 to £10,000 with funds raised by the lottery.

Thanks to an award of £8,960, the community trust will transform two phone boxes on each end of the island into information kiosks. Chair Sebastian Tombs said: “Transforming our two red telephone kiosks into welcoming information hubs at the arrival points on the island will be a real boost for us. Meanwhile in Falkirk, exciting plans are also afoot as the Communities Along the Carron Association picked up £10,000 to buy two tricycle rickshaws that will get people in local care homes out and about enjoying cycle rides. Project coordinator Christine Bell said: “We were absolutely delighted to be awarded this money which will help build our fleet of trishaws for our Cycling Without Age Falkirk project. The trishaws will visit local care homes on a daily basis ridden by volunteers who take elderly people out to enjoy fresh air, get the wind in their hair and enjoy a sense of fun and freedom.” A National Lottery Awards for All spokesperson said: “This funding will help a range of arts, sports and community groups from across Scotland to bring their projects ideas to life.

If you, and your local community group, would like to join them in celebrating a National Lottery award, you can find out how to apply by visiting our website.”
