BIG LOTTERY FUND
Martyn Day MP has thanked National Lottery players across his constituency for helping to raise the £70 million distributed by the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland annually, over £3.6m of which has been awarded to communities and people in Linlithgow and East Falkirk over the last seven years.
The Big Lottery Fund is the largest community grant-maker in the UK, and is responsible for distributing 40 per cent of funds raised for good causes by the National Lottery. Money is granted to community projects and people in need, with the aim of making the most of people’s skills, assets and energy and helping them bring their ideas to life.
Welcoming the news, Martyn Day MP said:“I recently met with Andrew Lindsay from the Big Lottery Fund to hear all about the great causes which the Big Lottery Fund is helping to support within my constituency. The money awarded so far has helped make a massive difference to the lives of people in the local community however, more funding is available. I’d strongly urge anyone who believes they may qualify to consider applying for a grant.”
