SportScotland chief executive Stewart Harris said: “This National Lottery funding awarded to clubs and communities across Scotland will provide incredible support and make a big difference for many projects.

“After a tough couple of years for the sport and physical activity sector, these grants will enhance the sporting opportunities for so many.

‘’This funding would not be possible without the National Lottery players and we thank them for their continued support.

“Throughout the years, the contribution from the National Lottery players has truly changed lives and supported people and communities to improve and grow.’’

The five projects across the region who are set to receive grants are part of an overall 103 awards being made to voluntary and community groups in Scotland, totaling £2.2m.
