Big Lottery Olympics Funding for Local Schools

Pupils from four West Fife primary schools have taken part in a cluster Olympic Games, after securing grants from the Big Lottery Fund that enabled them to deliver training sessions.

Maclean, Culross, Townhill and Crossford Primary Schools each delivered activities such as athletics, badminton, football, hockey, basketball, gymnastics, netball and tennis. The funding also went towards items such as t-shirts, flags, gazebos and sports equipment.

MSP for Dunfermline Bill Walker welcomed the funding:

“A large number of schools across West Fife were set to take part in the cluster Olympic Games, and I hope it went well for all of them. It’s great to see schools encouraging children to be active and take part in sports.

“The schools are just the latest beneficiaries of Big Lottery funding. They won this award through the 2014 Communities programme, which is aimed at building a legacy of well-being before and beyond the Commonwealth Games.

“2014 Communities is a micro grants programme that encourages people to participate in sport or physical activity. It offers grants of between £300 to £2,000 to local sports clubs, community and voluntary groups, community councils and schools.”
