A project in Inverness has benefited from more than £6000 in funding from the National Lottery.
Rokzkool Academy, which helps youngsters in the Merkinch area of the city, has been given a total of £6048 and the cash will be used to help with transport, volunteer expenses, and trips out for the children.
John West, one of the charity’s trustees, said the grant was welcome, adding: “It helps a great deal and we are very grateful.”
It was one of 103 community projects across Scotland which shared a total of £2,140,644 in National Lottery funding.
Kate Still, the chairwoman of the National Lottery Community Fund, said: “It’s great to see such a variety of projects being funded to help people of all ages and backgrounds begin to adapt and recover from the pandemic.”
She said that National Lottery players could be proud to know that the money they raised was making a huge difference helping people of all ages.
