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.”
