Dunfermline groups share in Big Lottery Awards cash

Dunfermline groups are celebrating being awarded cash boosts from the Big Lottery Awards for All grants.

Dunfermline Reign Basketball Club received a £4,000 grant to help deliver hour-long extra-curricular grassroots basketball sessions once per week for pupils under the age of 14 at each of the four secondary schools in Dunfermline. The club will recruit senior pupil assistant coaches, one from each school, to support the qualified coach at each session. In addition, pupils will have the opportunity to put their new skills into practice and represent their schools at festival events.

And 83rd Fife (Cairneyhill) Scout Group received a £10000 grant. The Scout group plans on building an extension on to the community hall in Cairneyhill to meet increasing demand on the facility and ensure sufficient storage space for all the community groups who use the hall.
