Sup­port­ers scoop top lottery award

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Ju­dith Ton­ner

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.”
