Almost £150K of Lottery funding received by community groups in the Causeway Coast & Glens
A

The National Lottery Community Fund has awarded almost £150,000 to community groups in the Causeway Coast & Glens Council area.

The money awarded to these community groups was funded to help the response to the current COVID-19 crisis, helping to ‘support people who are at high risk from COVID-19’, ‘supporting communities most likely to face challenges because of the COVID-19 lockdown measures’ and to have the ‘resources, connections, expertise or knowledge’, so that these communities are able to get through the COVID-19 pandemic.

CEO The National Lottery Community Fund, Dawn Austwick, said: “As the largest funder of community activity in the UK, we know community life and connections can help to build bonds of support during difficult times. Being kind, offering support and thinking of one another makes neighbourhoods and communities stronger together. This is particularly important for those who are more vulnerable and isolated. At The National Lottery Community Fund we support communities to thrive, this is why we’re pledging our support for this call to action in the coming weeks and months.”
