BROMSGROVE received £429,000 in National Lottery Funding last year, providing a boost to arts, sports and heritage projects.
Alvechurch Village Hall got £8,200 for its refurbishment project, Wythall CA Bowling Club was awarded £2,900 to make its roof water tight and Aston Fields Middle School received £9,800 for its extra-curricular workshops on health and nutrition.
Recipients of National Lottery Funding are now invited to enter the National Lottery Awards.
They have the chance of winning £2,000 cash and national recognition at a glittering ceremony broadcast on BBC One in October.
John Barrowman, presenter of last year’s National Lottery Awards Show, urged residents to nominate a Lottery-funded project for one of the accolades.
“All these fantastic projects are funded by National Lottery players – every one of you should feel proud to raise an astounding £34million a week, which provides much needed support to such life-changing work.”
National Lottery Awards are given across seven categories – Sport, Heritage, Arts, Environment, Health, Education and Voluntary/Charity, to reflect the range of funding the Lottery gives out.
To nominate a project tweet @LottoGoodCauses with your suggestions or call 0207 293 3599. Entries must be received by midnight on March 9.
