Loch Lomond Rowing is one of the local organisations to benefit from the National Lottery Fund.

Four organisations in Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven have received a combined total of £24,911 National Lottery funding after applying to National Lottery Awards for All Scotland.

The National Lottery Awards for All Scotland provides funding for projects that are aimed at improving local communities and the lives of those most in need.

The Scottish Kinship Care Alliance have been awarded £10,000 in funding, to further establish its existing office space, which is vital to the support of kinship carers and their families.

The Loch Lomond Rowing Club will use an award of £7,000 to upgrade toilet and changing facilities at its clubhouse near Mill of Haldane.

An award of £7,301 means that The Ferryfield Nursery can enhance its outdoor space to ensure a more fulfilled learning environment for children under three. This new space will also become a meeting place for older people.

The Bridge Court Social Club, a retirement and sheltered housing complex in Alexandria, will use its award of £610 to buy 30 dining-style chairs suitable for use during meals and special events. 

Local MSP, Jackie Baillie said: “I am delighted by the news that four deserving groups in my constituency are going to benefit from National Lottery funding. I would like to express my gratitude to the National Lottery, which provides opportunities for hardworking communities like ours to improve the services that they are able to offer.

“Without a doubt, these awards will make a difference to a wide range of activities, everything from nurseries to sheltered housing. These improvements will help strengthen the community and improve the lives of its residents.”
