Southport Projects Hit the Jackpot

NEWLY revealed figures show that more than £485,900 of National Lottery funding was awarded across Southport last year alone.  12 Lottery grants were given out in Southport during 2015; providing a vital boost to arts, sports and heritage projects alongside community groups helping those most in need. A wide variety of local projects received National Lottery grants last year, including:-

► £9,900 to Phoenix Community and Youth Project to create a community cafe and charity shop for the local community.

► £10,000 to Larkfield School to develop a wildlife zone in the school grounds.

► £10,000 to Fernley and Fleetwood Social Club to deliver IT training workshops for older people.

These examples, or any organisation that has ever received National Lottery funding, have the possibility of gaining nationwide acclaim by entering:- 'The National Lottery Awards 2016.'  National Lottery Awards winners will receive a £3,000 cash prize and national recognition at a glittering ceremony broadcast on BBC1, in October 2016.

John Barrowman, presenter of last year's National Lottery Awards show, said:- "The National Lottery Awards offer an unmissable opportunity to give outstanding projects their time to shine. If you can think of a great Lottery funded project, please nominate them for an Award. All these fantastic projects are funded by National Lottery players; every one of you should feel proud to raise an astounding £34million a week, which provides much needed support to such life changing work."

National Lottery Awards are given across seven categories; Sport, Heritage, Arts, Environment, Health, Education and Voluntary/Charity, to reflect the range of funding that the Lottery gives out.  If you wish to nominate your favourite project in this year's National Lottery Awards, tweet:- @LottoGoodCauses with your suggestions or call:- 0207 293 3599 to find out more and to enter. Entries must be received by midnight, on 9 March 2016.
