Dunfermline Carnegie Hockey Club Funding

Dunfermline Carnegie Hockey Club has received a £1,900 award from the Big Lottery Fund to purchase equipment and encourage young people to get involved in hockey. These objectives meet the 2014 Communities outcomes of “more people take part in sport or physical activity” and “more people volunteer in sport or physical activity”.

Bill Walker, MSP for Dunfermline, welcomed the award:

“I’m delighted to see funding invested in promoting sport, particularly in the run up to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

“The 2014 Communities programme is geared towards encouraging more people to take part in sport or physical activity, with the aim of creating a legacy before and beyond the Games. The programme will operate until the Glasgow 2014.

“It offers grants of £300 to £2,000 to sports clubs, schools, voluntary and community organisations and community councils, in order to support grass roots involvement in sport and physical activity.

“This award is great news for our local hockey club. Perhaps we’ll see some young people from Dunfermline in the Commonwealth Games Scotland Hockey Team!”
