Queen Anne High School £6,000 Sports Funding
Queen Anne High School in Dunfermline has received a grant of nearly £6,000 from the Big Lottery Fund to develop their extra-curricular sports programme, which is open to all pupils. The school will purchase and install rugby posts, basket ball stands and basketball markings.
Bill Walker, MSP for Dunfermline, welcomed the news:
“I’m pleased to hear Queen Anne High School has received this funding. It’s great to see young people being encouraged to keep healthy by taking part in sports, and it’s also important that schools can offer a range of after-schools activities.
“As ever, I strongly encourage local groups to apply for funding from the Big Lottery Fund and to be aware of other grants that might be available for their community projects and ideas.”
Queen Anne High School received a grant of £5,940 for their programme, which meets the Awards for All outcomes of “People have better chances in life” and “People and communities are healthier”.
Awards for All Scotland is supported by the Creative Scotland, sportscotland and the Big Lottery Fund. They award grants of between £500 and £10,000 for people to take part in art, sport, heritage and community activities, and for projects that promote education, the environment and health in the local community.
