A youth group in Blan­tyre earned a share in a £737k Na­tional Lot­tery fund.

Blan­tyre Youth De­vel­op­ment Team has been awarded £6062 to ex­plore how the group’s Ter­mi­nal One cen­tre could be de­vel­oped as a com­mu­nity-owned as­set.

The group is run by the Ter­mi­nal One youth cen­tre in Blan­tyre with a man­age­ment com­mit­tee of young peo­ple from the sur­round­ing area.

The cen­tre has been threat­ened with clo­sure, with ser­vice users and staff fight­ing to keep the lo­cal amenity alive.

This grant was one of 98 cash hand­outs shared be­tween com­mu­nity and arts and sports groups across Scot­land.

A lot­tery spokesper­son said: “This is Na­tional Lot­tery money reach­ing into com­mu­ni­ties across Scot­land, mak­ing a real dif­fer­ence to the peo­ple who live there.

“Each of the 98 groups re­ceiv­ing a to­tal of £737,262 today are fan­tas­tic ex­am­ples of the range of projects that this small grants pro­gramme can fund. It’s also clear that the small­est amounts of money can make a big dif­fer­ence.“

Na­tional Lot­tery Awards for All Scot­land award grants to com­mu­nity, arts and sports groups on be­half of Big Lot­tery Fund, Cre­ative Scot­land and sports­cot­land.
