Southport Projects Hit
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,
► £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
► £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
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.
