Dundee Community Groups Hit Lottery Jackpot

Christmas has arrived early for five community groups in Dundee which have been given a cash boost totalling more than £40,000.

The funding has come from National Lottery Awards for All Scotland, which makes grants from £300 to £10,000 to voluntary and community groups across the country.

Dundee Lifestyle Intervention CIC, which promotes healthy lifestyles through working with schools to address barriers relating to exercise and social disengagement, received the top award of £10,000.

The funding will be used for staff and equipment costs.

Shaper Caper Limited, a touring dance theatre company which runs community schemes aimed at vulnerable groups, also received a £10,000 grant which will be used to cover running costs for one year of its Day to Play project.

Tayside Healthcare Arts Trust was awarded £9,000, while Harris Academy received £6,380 and Dundee University Trampoline Club benefited to the tune of £5,245.

A spokeswoman for National Lottery Awards for All said: “This is National Lottery money making a real impact in communities across Scotland.”
