The money came from an Awards for All Scotland grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
Dunblane Pre-School Play Association received £2601, and will use the funding to develop the pre-school playgroup by buying a range of new toys, and providing music and singing sessions; Central Safe Drive Stay Alive received £10,000, and will use the funding to host their annual interactive event about road safety aimed at raising awareness of car safety among young people, and Friends of Raploch Nursery also received £10,000 to redevelop an outdoor area of Raploch Nursery School.
Stirling MP Stephen Kerr said: “It’s fantastic that the National Lottery has awarded this funding to local organisations. The money will have a tangible effect on people in Stirling.
“The playgroup and nursery awards will provide some excellent new resources and the ‘Safe Drive’ annual event is recognised as being an extremely effective presentation, bringing home to young people the, often tragic, consequences of poor driving. Submitting these applications can be very time consuming so I am delighted they have all been successful.”
