In­vi­ta­tion to po­ten­tial lot­tery ap­pli­cants

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Stir­ling area groups con­sid­er­ing an ap­pli­ca­tion for a lot­tery bid next week have the chance to learn more about the process.

The Big Lot­tery Fund Scot­land ad­vice team and staff will be at the Scot­tish Event Cam­pus, for­merly known as the SECC, on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day at the pop­u­lar event known as the The Gath­er­ing.

They will be ready to of­fer ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion at Stand 112 on how the Big Lot­tery Fund works in Scot­land and how to ac­cess their fund­ing.

Ev­ery year, Big Lot­tery Fund Scot­land dis­trib­utes mil­lions of pounds of the Na­tional Lot­tery’s good cause money to com­mu­nity groups and char­i­ta­ble projects around the UK

The Gath­er­ing is the only event of its kind in Scot­land and is a unique op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple in the third sec­tor to meet, con­nect and share ideas.

It’s also a great way to form new part­ner­ships and learn from a wide range of col­leagues.

In ad­di­tion, del­e­gates can sign up for the Big Lot­tery Fund work­shop on Wed­nes­day from 11.30am to 12.30pm.

The work­shop will pro­vide up-to­date ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion from the Big Lot­tery Fund team on the Na­tional Lot­tery fund­ing avail­able to com­mu­ni­ties across Scot­land as well as tips on how to ap­ply and ad­vice on what con­sti­tutes a good ap­pli­ca­tion.

MSP for Mid Scot­land and Fife Alexan­der Ste­wart said: “I would fully sup­port this ini­tia­tive and ac­tively en­cour­age all my con­stituents who are in­ter­ested, to go along and en­joy the event.”
