Broadford and Strath Community Company have been awarded funds from the National Lottery's good cause cash.

The announcement came today (Tuesday 16 January) and will mean the Skye company receives £142,060.  The money will allow them to teach people how to grow their own food and will introduce a shed for people to learn and share practical skills.

The cash from the Big Lottery Fund goes to 24 community groups in many parts of the country to deliver a range of stimulating activities that will boost peoples' creativity, confidence and self-esteem.  

Maureen McGinn, Chair, Big Lottery Fund Scotland, said: "Because people play the National Lottery, then great things can happen in their communities.

"Today's £6 million injection of funding is a perfect illustration, as it will create many new opportunities for people across Scotland to come together, learn and share skills.

"Thanks to this funding, thousands of Scots will have a stimulating New Year by being able to pursue a creative activity, acquire new skills such as growing and cooking or be able to take up volunteering opportunities."
