Last week I had the honour of hosting the Big Lottery Fund reception in the Scottish Parliament. The event, which was held in the Scottish Parliament restaurant, was held to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the National Lottery’s first draw and the 10th year of the Big Lottery Fund.
I was honoured to host the Big Lottery Fund event and to use the opportunity to highlight the excellent work being done across Fife as a result of their funding.
The aim of the event was to highlight the work of the Big Lottery Fund in Scotland and I was pleased to be able to use the opportunity to praise the excellent work being done across Fife as a result of their funding.
Since 2004 the Big Lottery Fund has distributed over £69 million to over 3,000 projects across Mid Scotland and Fife. This has included Kirkcaldy YMCA, who were present at the event highlighting their Plus One project, as well as other organisations such as Fife Gingerbread and Fair Isle Primary.
I have seen first hand the work that these organisations do and the difference they make to young people and their families in Fife.
