Woodmill High School awarded hockey club grant

Big Lottery FundWoodmill High School in Dunfermline has received £2,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme to develop a new extra-curricular hockey club. The project meets the 2014 Communities outcome of “more people take part in sport or physical activity”.

Bill Walker, MSP for Dunfermline, welcomed the funding: “This is very good news for pupils, and I congratulate PE Teacher Carly Ralfs.

“The 2014 Communities programme aims to build a legacy of well-being in the run up to Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and beyond. It’s great to see Woodmill getting involved in the spirit of the Games.

“I hope other Dunfermline groups and community organisations will also get involved in building a Games legacy and that they will apply for any funding that might help them do so. Individuals can also apply to be Commonwealth Games volunteers by visiting the Glasgow 2014 website.”

The Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities is a micro grants programme, which offers local sports clubs, voluntary and community organisations, community councils and schools grants of £300 to £2,000 to support and stimulate grass roots involvement in sport and physical activity. In year two of the programme, the Big Lottery Fund has £1 million to award in grants. 2014 Communities will continue to operate up to the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
