Supporters scoop top lottery award
Two Airdrie organisations have benefited from funding from the National Lottery’s awards for all scheme.
Airdrie United supporters’ society received the maximum award of £10,000, to install special equipment at their sensory room in New Broomfield for children living with autism.
Meanwhile, Plains neighbours in the Beverley Park residents’ association received nearly £7100 to buy equipment allowing them to run events in their community garden during the next year.
They were among 13 groups from North Lanarkshire and 92 across Scotland to benefit from the latest round of lottery funding.
A spokesperson for Awards for All said:“This is National Lottery money in action, reaching into communities across Scotland and making a real difference to the people who live there.
“It showcases the range of projects that can be funded through this programme and the difference that the smallest amounts of money can make.”
