Written by centralfmnews on November 4, 2019
A group in Grangemouth, which supports disabled people who take part in sport, is being awarded over £3,000.
Forth Valley Flyers will be handed the money as part of the 25th anniversary of the first National Lottery draw.
A further 14 local community, sport and art groups across the Forth Valley will get a share of a Scotland-wide £1.2 million grant.
Welcoming the news, Forth Valley Flyers Chairperson, Heather Ross, said: “The whole club is delighted to receive a grant from National Lottery Awards For All. This will enable us to push forward with our plans to offer more opportunities for those with a disability to get involved in athletics. More importantly it will boost confidence, skills and employment opportunities of those who will receive the training to become new coaches.”
