Anna Ritchie funding boost from Lottery
Anna Ritchie School in Peterhead has received a £10,000 funding grant from The National Lottery Community Fund.
The school's Parent Council received £10,000 which the group will purchase a 16-seater wheelchair accessible minibus to transport pupils to sporting and community engagements.
Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said: “I know the £10,000 awarded to the Anna Ritchie Parent Council will make transport much easier for getting pupils to sporting and community events."
Meanwhile, a cash boost of £3,500 was received by the Cetacean Research & Research Unit (CRRU) which will be used by the group to purchase a laptop, a projector, banners and educational tools to deliver marine stewardship workshops to schools and youth groups in coastal communities in Moray and Aberdeenshire.
The National Lottery Awards For All Scotland gives groups a chance to apply for a National Lottery grant of between £300 and £10,000 for projects that aim to help improve local communities and the lives of people most in need.
Mr Stevenson added: “I would encourage all groups who are in need of further funding to look at applying to the National Lottery Awards For All Scotland.”
