West Lothian Courier - - District News -

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.”
