Glenrothes MSP Highlights Funding Opportunity for Town’s 70th

To mark The Scottish Government’s Year of Young People 2018, £550k of National Lottery funding is now available for projects to help young people spark a change in their lives.

Mid Fife and Glenrothes MSP, Jenny Gilruth, is encouraging local youth groups to apply for the Year of Young People National Lottery Fund.

The Year of Young People National Lottery Fund is a joint scheme from Scotland’s National Lottery distributors. It offers funding between £3,000 and £10,000 to heritage, community and sports project that are run for and by young people aged 8 to 26 and that improve their health and wellbeing.

The MSP has hailed the new fund as a fantastic opportunity for local projects to celebrate Glenrothes’s 70th anniversary. Commenting, Ms Gilruth said:

“2018 in not only the Year of Young People, it’s the 70th anniversary of Glenrothes.

“This new fund presents a huge opportunity for local groups to mark our town’s heritage and inspire young people to be at the forefront of the celebrations.

“Figures show in parts of the town one in three children live in poverty – this new fund presents an opening for projects to improve the lives of young people in Glenrothes’.

“I strongly encourage groups to come forward and make the most of the funding, with the town’s 70th anniversary in mind.”
